East of England Affordable Housing Study Stage 2: Provision for Key Workers and Unmet Housing Need

Housing Association Service Charges and their Relationship to Rents: Dataspring Report 11
This report is aimed at understanding the relationship between rents and service charges and is important for all stakeholders in the HA sector.
Land and Finance for affordable housing
There is anecdotal evidence that what is finally delivered on the ground through s106 may be different from what was originally negotiated – for example, a large site may be broken up and sold to different developers who may re-negotiate the S106 affordable housing provision. The project aims to assess whether affordable housing is being lost or modified through negotiated changes to the initial agreed S106 as well as through non take-up of planning permission; and to gain an understanding of why this is happening and of patterns of behaviour. The project is joint with the University of Sheffield.
Piloting Choice-Based Lettings: An evaluation
This was a major project commissioned by DCLG to evaluate the 27 Choice Based Lettings pilots in England. The project was led by the School for Policy Studies at Bristol University, and the project report was published by DCLG (then ODPM).

Regional and Sub-regional Analyses: Residential Mobility of Social Tenants and Those Entering LCHO in the North Regions: Dataspring Report 9
This study concentrates on four aspects of household mobility in the northern regions.
Regional Assessment of the Need for Intermediate Housing
This research developed a methodology for estimating the future need for intermediate market housing – housing that is affordable to those who cannot access market housing but who could afford to pay more than social housing rents. Not all households in the relevant income bracket would want intermediate housing, so estimating the need using secondary data is challenging.
Rents Briefing Paper Four: Understanding the rent-restructuring formula for housing association target rents
This Briefing Paper seeks to give a better understanding of how the rent-restructuring formula works in practice. It examines the three elements of the rent restructuring formula: relative property values, relative average earnings, and the bedsize weight.

SHIP/Spending Review 2004, Report
Shelter commissioned an update of their major Housing Investment Project originally completed and published in 2000. The findings were used to feed into government consultation on the 2004 Comprehensive Spending Review. The report was published by Shelter in hard copy only.
Social housing rents in Wales, Report
This project was commissioned by the Welsh Assembly Government to collect data on the actual rents and service charges charged by every significant social landlord in Wales (22 local authorities and 33 housing associations), to establish the basis of each landlord’s policy for setting rents and the factors which the policies took into account, and to set rents and service charges in the broader context of affordability, including the heating costs of homes. The project report is published by the Assembly as Housing Research Report HRR105.
South east regional assembly: South east plan Research reports
This is a follow on to a previous study which outlined a methodology for assessing housing need in the South East region. There are two small projects: one producing an estimate of newly arising demand and need and one an estimate of unmet current housing need. It covers sub-regions as well as the region as a whole. The reports form part of the evidence base for the South East Plan.
The growing importance of group structure arrangements in the housing association sector in England, Report

The Value for money of delivering affordable housing through S106, Report
This study was commissioned by DCLG (then ODPM) as a parallel to the work on s106 and SHG funded by JRF and TSA (then the Housing Corporation). The work involved analysis of TSA and DCLG data, case studies, interviews with developers and housing associations and analysis of site specific financial information. The interim report fed into the consultation on an optional charge for affordable housing. Like other projects on s106, Sheffield collaborated on the work. The report has been published both in hard copy and on the DCLG web site.
West Midlands Rural Housing Report
