The report is intended to stimulate debate and provoke thinking on the next stages in the evolution of housing associations. The report is in two halves. The first five chapters detail funding arrangements which would put housing association community investment on a sustainable footing. The second five demonstrate what housing associations could then achieve for their own communities in return, and how they could contribute to government policy.
This new thrust towards 'community investment' rather than property investment is likely to be the next stage for social landlords. Many will welcome the challenge of a bigger role as facilitators of community-based neighbourhood renewal.
