Implementing New Powers for Private Sector Housing Renewal by Rick Groves
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In the light of recent reforms to the legislation governing private sector housing renewal, local authorities now have a greatly increased level of flexibility to develop policies to deal with poor housing conditions in the private sector which match local circumstances. This report is based on a study which examined the extent to which local authorities are exercising this flexibility and whether they had implemented a policy framework to enable them to do so. The research assessed a number of factors which could enhance local authorities' level of flexibility, including resources and private sector support, to highlight good practice in policy development. The report outlines innovative approaches (both effective and ineffective) in encouraging and supporting private sector renewal and evaluates the extent of change in policy or arrangements made by local authorities to accommodate the changes in the system. It also identifies gaps in provision, such as the contrast between the scale of the problem of private sector housing conditions and local authority staff resources, and suggests how these might be overcome. This report will be of particular interest to be policy makers and practitioners and builds further on the Foundation's housing market renewal programme of work. It will be helpful to local authorities wishing to implement the new policy framework effectively and will complement "ODPM's Housing Statistics" work on the redesign of the P4 form local authorities return.
