Housing and Planning Bill analysis
Posted by: Titlesolv
Reception to the Housing and Planning Bill, laid before Parliament in October, has been mixed to say the least. With provisions giving social housing tenants a right to buy (RTB), a 1 per cent annual rent reduction in the social rented sector over four years from April, and a pay-to-stay measure charging social housing tenants market rent, critics warn that housing associations, and social housing, could soon be a thing of the past.

Since its introduction in October, the Housing and Planning Bill has had a lukewarm reception. It contains the government's promise last summer to extend the right to buy (RTB) to social housing tenants. Following concerns raised by housing associations, a last-minute agreement was reached to introduce this on a voluntary basis.
