Homes England welcomed

Date: 18/1/2018

The government has relaunched the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) as Homes England, with a mandate to use its significant statutory powers to help local authorities boost housing delivery.

Planning magazine reports that the new HE chief executive Nick Walkley says the new body would grow to offer a "full range of development skills" to assist local authorities, and have a remit to use its statutory powers.

Nicky Linihan, housing delivery specialist at the Planning Officers' Society, told Planning she welcomed the additional resources to support the delivery of housing, but said: "I hope this will be through positive collaboration with local authorities and communities".
