Common Starting Points for S106 Affordable Housing Negotiations
This report has been drawn upon by CLG to inform the development of the Community Infrastructure Levy. The aim was to explore current LPA practice, to evaluate the relative merits of different CSPs, consider issues such as a single CSP and identify whether the adoption of CSPs would be beneficial.
Comparing rents and user costs
This paper compares housing association (HA) gross rents, HA net rents, local authority (LA) rents, private sector rents and owner-occupation user costs to clarify the trends and relationships between housing expenditures across tenures. The comparison is carried out using the datasets for the years 2001/02 and 2006/07 at different spatial levels (i.e. national, regional and LA levels) and for different property types (i.e. bedspace, bedsits, one to six or more bedrooms and all sizes taken together).
Comparing Rents and User Costs, 2005/06 and 2001/02
This paper examines how housing association (HA) rents relate to costs in other tenures in 2005/06 and 2001/02, the year before target rents were introduced. It compares HA rents, local authority rents, private sector rents and owner-occupation user costs at national, regional and LA levels and for different property types.
Comparison between Housing Association Sector and Private Sector Rental Rates of Return across England: 1998/99 to 2006/07
The report examines the spatial pattern of rental rates of return in the housing association sector as compared to those observed in the private rented sector between 1998/99 and 2006/07 at national as well as at lower geographical levels. It also looks at rate differentials between the two sectors at four metropolitan areas: London, Birmingham, Manchester and Newcastle.
Comparison of registered social landlord rents with owner occupier costs, 1998/99 to 2006/07
The report illustrates the recent development of owner-occupation (OO) costs at the lower priced property market and compares OO costs with registered social landlord (RSL) rents. It also examines the relationship between OO costs and RSL rents from 1998/99 to 2006/07 at different spatial levels.

This Practice Guidance to Section 106 Agreements is a tool to support local planning authorities (LPAs) in delivering more affordable housing through the planning system. It aims to assist LPAs to improve the development, negotiation and implementation of Section 106 Agreements.
Detailed Analysis of Housing Association Rents and Rental Rates of Return: 1998/99 to 2006/07
The report analyses how housing association (HA) rents relate to the lower quartile house prices in the private sector over the period 1998/99 to 2006/07 at national as well as at lower geographical levels. It also looks at the variation of rental rates of return on HA housing between regions.
Detailed Analysis of the Current Pattern of Registered Social Landlord (RSL) Rents: 2001/02 – 2006/07
The report examines the RSL rent patterns over the period from 2001/02 to 2006/07. It also looks at changes in rents over the five year period from 2001/02 to 2006/07 at different spatial levels; rents by property size; and finally the rent relativities between neighbouring local authorities.
Detailed Analysis of the Private Rents and Rental Rates of Return: 1996/97 to 2006/07
This report analyses how private rents relate to the lower quartile house prices in the private sector. It also looks at changes in the spatial pattern of private rents and private gross rental rates of return from 1996/97 to 2006/07 at national, regional and local authority levels.

Homes for the Future: A New Analysis Technical Report
This is the technical report that provides the detail of the method of estimating housing need and demand for the latest update of Shelter’s Homes for the Future series.
Housing association rents, private rents and rental rates of return, 1998/99–2006/07
This is a series of three reports which examine changes in housing association rents and rental rates of return between 1998/99 and 2006/07; private rents and rental rates of return between 1996/97 and 2006/07; and the comparison of rental rates of return between the two sectors from 1998/99 to 2006/07.
Housing Associations and the movement to target rents, 2007 to 2008
Each year TSA published data in the form of a Rent factfile, a paper that compares actual net rents to target rents as at 31 March of two consecutive years. The Rent factfile was produced on behalf of TSA by Dataspring. This paper compares 31 March 2007 and 31 March 2008 and examines the extent to which actual rents have moved towards target rents. It also describes the annual change in gross rents for the period 1 April 2007 to 31 March 2008.

NROSH: Lessons Learned Phase II, Report
This research focuses on HAs that have submitted data once or sporadically since November 2005. The aim is to find out the reasons HAs do not submit NROSH data on a regular basis and what can be done to ease the process. This follows Phase I of the research which focused on HAs that submit data on a regular basis.
Paper Eight – Regional differences in demand for Affordable Housing
Regional differences in demand for Affordable Housing examines the spatial impacts on demand for affordable housing. It does this by investigating the key differences between the regions and looking at indications of demand to draw out key differences. It then looks at how the profile of those living in social housing differs between the regions. The paper also explores some of the key differences in different types of areas found throughout the country.
Paper Five – Tenure aspirations and shared ownership
Tenure Aspirations and Shared Ownership examines the profile of those currently living in shared ownership and then looks at demand for the tenure by considering the reasons why households apply or do not apply for it.
Paper Four – Moving into social housing
Moving into Social Housing considers demand for social housing amongst those not currently in the sector and examines the profile of the client group seeking social housing. It looks at why people do or do not apply for affordable housing and then proceeds to examine the profile of those who have actually entered the sector in recent years.
Paper One - The Profile of Affordable Housing Residents
The profile of affordable housing residents examines the current profile of affordable housing residents in terms of age, gender, ethnicity and working status. It then proceeds to look at the future composition of the sector if current trends remain the same and considers some of the key drivers likely to alter this profile.
Paper Seven – BME Housing needs and aspirations
Black and Minority Ethnic Housing needs and aspirations examines the housing needs and aspirations of Britain’s largest Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) populations. It sets out to identify how demographic, spatial and economic factors have influenced BME populations’ tenure patters to the date, and how changes in these patters may affect the demand for affordable housing from BME populations in the future. This paper also explores the ways in which BME households’ needs and preferences differ from those of White Britons.
Paper Six - Affordable Housing in London: Needs and Provision, Aspirations and Realities
Affordable Housing in London: Needs and Provision, Aspirations and Realities focuses on London. London’s sheer size, as well as its economic and political importance mean that it has a housing system that is qualitatively different to other parts of the UK. This paper examines the role of affordable, and particularly, social rented housing within that system. It looks at evidence about the scale of housing need and housing supply in the city, the and also at the longer-term housing aspirations of less well-off Londoners.
Paper Three – Moving Within and Leaving Social Housing
Moving Within and Leaving Social Housing focuses on social rented housing and examines the profile of households that leave the tenure, the reasons for leaving, and where they move to. It also looks at the profile of households that move within the tenure, and their reasons for moving.
Paper Two - Living in Affordable Housing
Living in Affordable Housing examines what residents think of living in affordable housing. It sets out what is known about design preferences overall before exploring what affordable housing residents particularly like and dislike about their homes and considers what could be done to better meet the aspirations of those within the sector.
