Detail

The general housing consents 2013 set out those situations where the specific consent of the Secretary of State is not required before a local authority disposes of council housing land and associated assets. The consents were last updated in 2012. This version removes some perceived ambiguities in the previous version while extending local authority freedom regarding the granting of leases and the disposal of reversionary interests.
