What does a deregulated social housing sector look like? What are the key opportunities and risks for housing association boards and executive teams?
From April, measures designed to reverse the Office for National Statistics’ (ONS) decision to reclassify associations as public sector bodies come into effect.
While the deregulation agenda has been welcomed by some as a way of liberating the sector, there are warnings of legal and governance pitfalls and the need for boards to be at the top of their game once the safety net is removed.
In what is a significant of year of change for social housing regulation, April is also the date ear-marked for the introduction of fees.
Meanwhile, a new 'non-departmental public body' will be created to look after the regulatory functions of the HCA.
All this and more will be covered at our one-day Future of Regulation events in March where you will get to hear direct from senior figures from the Homes and Communities Agency and other top speakers.
