NOVUS calls for 'duty-to-deliver' council housing where private sector fails

Date: 29/7/2015

NOVUS has issued its latest statement - how we can build our way out of the housing crisis.

It says that, at a time of cross-party consensus on the need to dramatically increase delivery of new homes, the government needs to stop using local government as a "scapegoat" for the problem and recognise its key role.

The report also calls for the creation of a "bold new delivery agency" to help share skills and knowledge across council boundaries, "mobilising unsung talent already in local government" as well as attracting new talent.
