The Northern Housing Consortium’s On the Day Briefing for the Spending Review 2015 is now available. You can read it here.
For housing and local government, the Spending Review has been a mixed bag. While we welcome housing being at the centre of the review, we remain concerned about local authorities and their abilities to provide services to their local communities. Some of the pre-spending review rumours proved to be exactly that, although with the Housing and Planning Bill 2015 having not yet passed through Parliament there may be more detail that produces a devil.
As ever with announcements of this nature, our on the day briefing is designed to give you and immediate assessment of the thrust of the document but we will continue to work over the coming days to more fully understand the impact across NHC members.
