Statement from Martin Swales, Solace Spokesperson for Economic Prosperity and Housing, in response to the Prime Minister’s announcement at Conservative Party Conference that the HRA borrowing cap would be lifted

“It is excellent news that the Prime Minister has recognised what we have long been saying: this country will only solve the housing crisis if councils are freed to build at scale again. This vote of confidence in the sector is very welcome.”

“By enabling councils to play a bigger part in increasing the supply of social and affordable homes across the country, this announcement stands to make a very positive difference for our residents and communities.”
