A Housing Company for Oxford
The report will set
out the case for the establishment of a Council owned company to
deliver additional affordable housing for Oxford.
The recent 1% social rent cut in the budget and the policy on extending the Right to Buy to housing associations paid for from HRA budgets has led to the deferment of the new build Council housing programme. Some of the detail of these policies have only recently emerged only now allowing a meaningful discussion of the options available and the potential impacts on the Council.
