Household income distribution estimates: The example of Pay to Stay impacts in Local Authority areas in two English regions
Drawing on household income distributions, this pilot study estimates the localised impact and scale of Pay to Stay (PTS) for London and the West Midlands. The test results show that the new social rent regime will affect local authority (LA) areas unevenly – Pay to Stay affected household (PTS HH) proportions were estimated to range from around 6 to 16% while the counts ranged from around 300 to 6,500 households. PTS requires English local authority landlords to charge market (or quasi-market) rents to tenants on higher incomes.
Experimental review of the Cambridge Travel to Work Area (TTWA) as a tool for informing local housing policy - including a study of the Ely housing market in the context of the Cambridge TTWA
Travel To Work Areas are used primarily to understand local labour markets, but are also used in housing planning. However, TTWAs do not allow for overlap. Taking Cambridge as their example, Chihiro Udagawa and Dr Paul Sanderson identified commuting areas for Cambridge that lie within the boundaries of other employment hubs. Their study suggested that care should be taken when using TWAs for housing planning purposes.
Encouraging inter-regulator data sharing: the perceptions of regulators
The report explores attitudes towards data sharing of 63 regulators in 30 organisations. The findings indicate the extent to which regulators share data is influenced by several complex factors including the difficulty of balancing privacy with freedom of information.
Estimated net income distribution for eight household types in the London Borough of Bromley at mid-Super Output Area (SOA) level
Information about household incomes at a local level is difficult to obtain yet social landlords may need such data in order to set rents. To address this issue, CCHPR has developed a model to estimate household income distribution by percentile for eight household types at local market level.
The Citizen in Regulation: Final Report
This chapter reviewed the existing literature on the perceived benefits of citizen participation in public services, exploring where evidence indicated that citizen involvement may be applied in the context of local regulation to improve regulatory outcomes.
Target rents in relation to market levels: 2008/09
This paper evaluates target rents in terms of the restructuring regime objectives by examining to what extent the target rents are employing market logic in their formation to reflect the policy objectives, with a main emphasis on a comparative approach. On the assumption that market rents are currently close to equilibrium, this paper compares target rents to private rents in an attempt to capture the extent to which fairness and affordability are delivered by the target rents.
