This report looks at the role of housing associations in enacting the Government's localism agenda following the enactment of the Localism Bill. The report argues that there needs to be a new normal in the sector. Housing associations need to be bolder, more strategic and more radical in their approach to localism, making it and the good that it facilitates a core part of their operations and not the add-on it has often been in the past. They need to enable stronger community-led partnerships, transferring assets and services to community control where communities are ready and able to take them on, and growing and augmenting that capacity where they are not.
