ARCH Chair to meet the Housing Minister 30/08/2018 Labelled as Development

ARCH Chair, Cllr Kim Caddy and Chief Executive, John Bibby are to meet the new Housing Minister, Kit Malthouse along with the Chair and Managing Director of the National Federation of ALMOs (NFA) in October.


Immediately following his appointment as Housing Minister on 9 July 2018, as we have done with the previous four Housing Ministers following their appointments, we wrote jointly with the NFA to welcome the new Minister and to seek a meeting with him.


ARCH Chief Executive also wrote to the Minister on 30 July 2018 to draw his attention to our report "Raising the Roof", following comments he made regarding "under-utilised" HRA borrowing headroom.


Following the announcement of the HRA Borrowing Programme, the decision to abandon the High Value Asset Levy and the recently issued consultation on use of Right to Buy receipts, we hope to convince the Minister that with even greater freedoms, stock retained councils can do more to meet the need for social housing and help fix the broken housing market.
