A major report, which spotlights Colchester Borough Council’s ambitions to build more council houses, was launched at the Local Government Association’s annual conference in July.

The report by the Local Government Information Unit (LGiU) and the District Councils Network (DCN), titled Districts building for the future: The impact of the removal of the HRA borrowing cap, surveyed 50 Councils nationwide. It concludes that the 2018 lifting of a Government debt cap on local council borrowing to fund housebuilding has already led to two-thirds of councils seizing the opportunity to build more social housing in the near future.
