Join for a round table ‘show and tell’ of comparing experience, issues and successes around Local Authority direct provision of housing.
During 2017, the National Planning Forum and RTPI sponsored research on local authority direct provision of housing led by Janice Morphet and Ben Clifford of the Bartlett School of Planning. The report has been well received by several organisations, has been a topic for dissemination across England, and it recommendations to the remove the HRA borrowing cap for local authorities was announced by the Prime Minister on 3rd October.
Following this success, the RTPI has now agreed to undertake a continuation research project which is being funded by HQ and three regions, the SE, the WM and the NW.
There has been much positive feedback from members stating that the roundtables for local authories conducted as part of this research were particularly helpful for sharing and making positive relationships with housing colleagues and other neighbouring local authorities. As such, a second wave of roundtables will be held around the country.
This South East Roundtable is open to all local authority planners and housing colleagues with relevant experience to share.
