Yarlington responds to the White Paper
February 07, 2017
In response to the Government’s Housing White Paper announcement today, Chief Executive of Yarlington Housing Group, Gary Orr, said:
“We welcome the release of the Government’s Housing White Paper today and very much support the ambitions to tackle our broken housing market. At Yarlington, we have already set ourselves ambitious targets to build more homes and its encouraging to know that the Government agree that building homes of all tenures is the way forward to solve the housing crisis.
“We also welcome the announcement that there will be a rent policy for post 2020 and look forward to discussing this in more detail with Government.
“There are a number of proposals outlined in the paper which are now out for consultation and we will work through the detail. We’re particularly interested to find out more about reforming CIL, potential changes to 106 Agreements and the approach for implementing a new supported housing funding model.”
