Councils Get Help To Meet Housing Targets

Councils are to get expert advice to help meet government housebuilding targets. Local authorities will get an adviser under a new scheme to enable their housing and planning teams to meet the pressures of reducing homelessness and build more homes. The LGA unveiled the Housing Advisers Programme for local authorities undertaking a specific project that delivers and plans for new homes, reduces homelessness, or helps councils generate savings or revenues. Under the scheme, councils can bid to get up to £14,000 to fund an external adviser to review and develop their plans. Read more on the LGA website.
