We’ve been working on affordable housing monitoring with Southwark Council. This is the second of a series of blog posts about why this is a national issue and our approach to tackling it.
To balance the need for flexibility against the need for consistency, our delivery leads have created a handful of guides to help on projects.
We’ve been working on affordable housing monitoring with Southwark Council. Without knowing where our affordable housing provision is, we don’t have the tools to detect fraud or know how effective current policy is so we’ve been working on a solution.
