This guide is aimed at all those who need to be up to speed with local authority finance in this large and key sector, including directors and senior managers of housing within local authorities and their arm’s-length management organisations (ALMOs), councillors and ALMO board members with responsibility for the authority’s housing stock. It replaces and fully revises two previous CIPFA guides:  An Introductory Guide to Housing Finance and The Guide to Housing Self-financing.

It is an essential reference and working guide for all finance professionals responsible for housing, either in the local authority or in ALMOs, and local authority corporate finance staff, especially those working on treasury management issues.

It includes the most recent changes and announcements by the government.

This guide is available in book, CD-ROM and bookmarked PDF formats. The CD-ROM contains a bookmarked pdf of the publication, together with fully searchable text enabling users to search powerfully and accurately for any given word or phrase. The CD-ROM comes complete with a licence for networking to all established employees of the purchasing authority only.
