Dear Leeds City Council,

I am writing a dissertation on affordable housing provision in the local area. For the purposes of my research, please could you provide a list of all land under H.B.C ownership including it's size and current use where possible.

Please could you also advise how many houses were built by H.B.C and their respective tenure.

Finally, could you advise what borrowing restrictions the housing revenue account imposes on the council?

Many thanks

Haley

Dear Haley,

 

Further to my email below, I am now pleased to provide the answers to your
further questions:

 

Please could you also advise how many houses were built by Leeds City
Council and their respective tenure?

 

The Council’s housing growth programme has currently delivered 627 homes
from the 2014/15 financial year to the present, predominantly for rent
with some shared ownership homes amongst them.

 

Finally, could you advise what borrowing restrictions the housing revenue
account imposes on the council?

 

Caps on borrowing were imposed on each of 169 councils that had housing
stock in April 2012, based on calculations under the old Housing Revenue
Account (HRA) subsidy system. The caps impose limits on how much each
council can borrow for council housing purposes. The limit includes the
debt they already have: anything above this and still within the limit is
called ‘headroom’.

 

I trust that this is of assistance, but please do contact me if you
require further help.

 

Regards,

Richard
