The Local Government Association and the Housing & Finance Institute have launched a new housing programme for councils called 'HBR Springboard'

HBR Springboard is designed to meet the needs of councils that have the appetite and ambition to shape the delivery of homes for their area, and who recognise that getting support will deliver results faster. Councils will have the opportunity to present and get tips from experts in their field, including investors, professional services, housebuilders and others. 

In addition, this is an opportunity to attract and secure dedicated resource support from a range of partners, as well as priority consideration for potential investment funding from Cheyne Social Property Impact Fund.

The LGA are sponsoring the Springboard programme to support skills and capacity building within local government. This financial support has reduced the cost of the programme to only £250 per person. It is recommended that two people attend from each council.

Places are limited. To take up your place on the HBR Springboard please following the link here.
