Levelling-Up Committee begins inquiry on the finances and sustainability of the social housing sector
The LUHC Committee holds the first evidence session of its inquiry into the finances and sustainability of the social housing sector in England.
Witnesses will be questioned on topics relating to the housing association’s financial resilience and how housing associations prioritise refurbishment, remediation and new development work when budgets are tight.
The session is also likely to explore how social and affordable housing is financed through planning obligations and by cross-subsidy from the sale of private and shared-ownership homes. As part of this, MPs will also examine how well the shared-ownership housing model serves both housing associations and residents.
