Purpose of the session
With completions of social and affordable rented homes at an all-time low, the Committee will question housing associations and regional housing groups on what is preventing them from building more. It will examine how housing associations currently fund new homes, and how vulnerable the current mixed funding model is to market slowdown.
The Committee will ask about impact of the introduction of Affordable Rent, Right to Buy and Right to Acquire on levels of provision and affordability for housing association tenants. The session will also look at the relationship between housing associations, local authorities and national Government, as well as issues including planning and access to land.
