Notice Abstract

The Housing Act 2014 has enabled Wales to establish a unique policy framework for the delivery and management of affordable homes. The Act, coupled with policy changes and the introduction of welfare reform has therefore presented a number of serious challenges to some Local Authorities in Wales. However, there are also opportunities through the removal of the HRA borrowing cap and the delivery of Council's WHQS programme of Works that the onus has now switched for collaborative and regional working to deliver high quality homes and effective services. As part of these requirements Caerphilly County Borough Council are now seeking to engage a consultancy that shares the Council’s ethos and understanding in order to develop an ambitious and yet deliverable Local Housing Strategy.
