Reasons for Decision


To update Cabinet on the progress of the HRA infill sites, acquisition programme and PSP Southend LLP developments. Also, to provide an update on the pipeline and regeneration framework.


Other Options


Alternative arrangements for the Right to Buy spend such as grants to Registered Providers were considered for the Acquisitions Programme, however, this would not have resulted in the long term benefit to the Council in the way of HRA property.
