GOVERNMENT STARTS CONSULTATION TO DUMP HOUSING REPLACEMENT COMMITMENT

GOVERNMENT STARTS CONSULTATION TO DUMP HOUSING REPLACEMENT COMMITMENT

Scope of the consultation

1) Options for reforming the rules around the use of Right to Buy receipts

2) Reforming the replacement commitment

This is a case of we are NOT currently managing to replace homes sold so we would like to move the goal posts

Take Northampton for instance: Sales total 595 replacements 187

This consultation seeks views on options for reforming the rules governing the use of Right to Buy receipts from the sale of council housing, and whether we should reform the commitment that every additional home sold (as a result of the increase in discounts in 2012) is replaced on a one-for-one basis nationally.
