Catchup - the Conservatives and regulation of social housing

Life has been busy - mostly working with organisations in the overlap of the public, charitable and education sectors. This month I will try to reserve more time for this blog.

This weekend I have been catching up on last month's issues of Public Finance. It was disappointing to see that the Conservatives appear to be planning to re-arrange the regulatory landscape for English social housing as part of the crusade against quangos. If the Tenants Services Authority is doomed, there will have to be a new regulatory regime otherwise lenders will be wary of lending to housing associations - or, if they do, it will be at higher margins.
