Detail

This document sets out the rationale, methodology and financial parameters for our reforms to the council housing finance system in England – ‘self-financing’. It also outlines the wider policy context, including those policies that will support the successful implementation of this devolved system.

The methodology set out here builds on that which was proposed – and broadly supported – in the Department for Communities and Local Government’s March 2010 consultation.
