CIH Conference Think Tank - A new mindset for local authority housing delivery?
The Housing White Paper – Fixing our broken housing market - has given encouragement to local authorities looking to start or indeed intensify their involvement in the direct delivery of new home starts. The government has welcomed the many innovative models that local authorities are using.
In this session Scott Dorling and Rob Beiley of Trowers & Hamlins will look at:
- A number of those models including corporate and contractual joint ventures both with the private sector and with housing associations
- Local housing companies and their numerous permutations
Natalie Elphicke, Chief Executive of the Housing and Finance Institute will give an insight into many of the examples of local authority good practice in increasing housing supply over the last couple of years. John East, Strategic Director for Growth and Homes at the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, will talk about his council's ambitious plans for delivering thousands of new homes and how this is planned to be achieved.
