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.

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 £300 per person. It is recommended that two people attend from each council.
