The next meeting of the ARCH New Build Network will take place on
Monday 16 April 2018 in London.
Colleagues from Bournemouth & North Kesteven councils will
share their experiences in developing and delivering their new
build programmes and we will be joined by a representative from
MHCLG who will update us on the government's support for "a new
generation of council housing" including the latest on the
prospectus for accessing the additional £1bn HRA borrowing headroom
announced by the Chancellor in the Autumn Budget. We also hope to
have a representative from Homes England to outline how councils
can access the additional £2bn allocated to the Affordable Housing
Programme for affordable housing.
There will be ample opportunity to network with colleagues and
learn from others' experiences.
The event is intended to be a "hands on" session aimed
specifically at officers involved in developing and delivering
their council's new build programme. Places are limited to a
maximum of 2 places per authority and can be booked here.
