Social rented housing

To help develop this article, click 'Edit this article' above.


The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) defines social rented housing as:

'...owned by local authorities and private registered providers (as defined in section 80 of the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008), for which guideline target rents are determined through the national rent regime. It may also be owned by other persons and provided under equivalent rental arrangements to the above, as agreed with the local authority or with the Homes and Communities Agency.'

NB, The Homes and Communities Agency is now known as Homes England.
