Executive Leader's Announcements

Minutes:

The Executive Leader advised the Executive that on Tuesday 26 June the Secretary of State announced a programme to stimulate new council housebuilding, by allowing Councils in areas with the highest affordability pressures for homes, including Fareham, to bid for an increase in its borrowing cap.  This means that, if successful, the Council would be allowed to take on more debt to build new council houses.

 

£1billion of new borrowing is being made available, with half of this open to bids from Councils outside of London.  The programme is for 3 years from 2019-2022 and successful bids would enable loans to be drawn down from April 2019.

 

As the delivery of affordable homes is a corporate priority for the Council, the Executive Leader has asked officers to prepare a number of bids to be submitted by the deadline of 7 September 2018.  

 

The Minister also announced that Councils would be able to increase housing rents again from 2020.  This would allow rents to increase by Consumer Price Index +1% each year and could increase rental income for the Housing Revenue Account by £400,000 per year.  This is another positive step as rents will be able to support our investment in new council houses.
