Consultation description

The government is committed to reducing bureaucracy generally and burdens on local government specifically. Its intention is that intervention in local housing affairs by central government be kept to a minimum and be enacted where it is necessary to protect public finances or the rights of individuals.

We are therefore seeking views on clarifying and simplifying the legislation that governs the disposal of council house assets and how the receipt from such disposals should be used.
