That the Housing & New Homes Committee:
(1) Notes the work programme to date to increase the supply of affordable housing in the city and proposals to increase cross council resources to support expansion of the programme to realise the council’s ambitions to increase housing supply.
(2) Agrees (subject to government guidance) for the council to utilise HRA borrowing flexibilities to deliver future New Homes for Neighbourhoods Schemes.
(3) Notes that as a result of current forecast underspend in the HRA, the month 7 Budget Monitoring report to Policy Resources & Growth Committee will propose that £1.5m will be used as a revenue contribution to the capital programme to support further housing delivery via the Home Purchase Scheme for 2019/20.
