Executive summary

Approval is sought for expenditure of up to £50,000 to commission research into the development capacity of small housing associations and stock-owning local authorities. The research will test the concept of a setting up a ‘support team’ to provide skills, experience and expertise to these organisations, and the extent to which such a team could enable them to reach their full development potential. The research will contribute towards the GLA’s objective of significantly increasing housing supply in the capital.
