Making Housing Delivery Models Work for London

delivery models banner

Cross-sector partnerships are on the rise again in the quest to deliver housing and regeneration more effectively. The emphasis now is on structures that give councils more control and help them retain assets for long-term revenue. But most models, from joint ventures through council-owned companies to new tenures and types, are relatively new; gathering best practice from concept to delivery is difficult at best.

What is clear is that local authorities – and sometimes housing associations – are outgunned in ways that can be addressed. They bring valuable property to the table, along with community and delivery experience. However, the enabling cash and expertise needed to get deals and development moving often come from the private sector. There’s an emerging need to balance skill sets, and for partners to better understand each other’s drivers and processes.

Making Housing Delivery Models work for London, identified the models – council house-building, public-private partnerships and community-led housing – being used across the capital, what they’re delivering, and how to make the most of them for Londoners.
