L&Q has developed a report, in collaboration with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) on the unique role housing associations could play in responding to a new age of austerity in public expenditure.

The paper, Hard times, new choices, was written in consultation with a wide range of industry experts. It considers how housing associations should operate, be funded and regulated in the future, and calls for a new contract to be struck between government and housing associations.

The paper also offers recommendations to housing associations on ways to increase financial strength, improve operational efficiency, and open new pathways to home ownership. It calls on Government to offer programme certainty, provide greater availability of discounted publicly held land and increase flexibility around rent and asset management.
