Undaunted by the lack of radical reform presented in the government's recent consultation paper, 'Modernising Local Government' the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) are staging an array of financial debates to stimulate thinking in the run up to the publication of the comprehensive spending review. John Perry, policy director and acting chief executive said:

'We are hoping for an indication of a secure, long-term financial future for social housing in the comprehensive spending review. Conference sessions will put flesh on the bones of what is required.'

The radical overhaul needed will be the subject of no less than five sessions at the forthcoming CIH conference in (15-19 June 1998) - Housing: the Challenge Ahead. The spotlight session will be 'Council Housing - identifying a sustainable financial future', presented by Graham Moody, managing director of Graham Moody Associates. His research and proposals on housing finance have already been published by the CIH - the conference will see the launch of another briefing paper which will address how much investment is required, and how can it be accessed and sustained.

The other financial sessions will cover rents, benefit reform, home-ownership, repair and improvement the release of equity and particularly in older people's houses, and fraud.
