Labour Party to launch housing network

The Labour Party will launch a network of local authorities to flag up innovation and best practice in housing.

Shadow housing minister Jack Dromey revealed that the housing ‘innovation network’ will be launched by the Party at a housing summit in the autumn.

He trailed the new network in a series of speeches at the party conference this week.

‘It is about how good Labour local authorities, even in straitened times, go for it [house building], including [how they are] using housing revenue account reform,’ he told delegates at a fringe meeting on Sunday.

Mr Dromey remained tight-lipped about the way the network will operate but he revealed that Manchester Council will be a member.
