Housing Targets

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 24 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what guidance she has issued to arms length management organisations in the last six months on meeting Decent Homes Standard targets. (115039)

The most recent guidance we have issued on meeting Decent Homes standard targets is the written statement that my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, made to the House on 7 June 2006, Official Report, columns 27-29WS. On the same day we also published “The Decent Home : Definition and guidance for implementation” to update guidance published in February 2004; a “Supplement to Guidance on Arms Length Management”, supplementing guidance published in October 2004 for local authorities wishing to apply for places on the ALMO programme; and a discussion paper entitled “From Decent Homes to Sustainable Communities”. Ministers and officials also correspond frequently with individual or groups of ALMOs about their Decent Homes plans and have continued to do so over the last six months.
