Key reforms proposed in this bill include introduction of the Right to Buy for housing association tenants, forced sale of council homes, and provision of starter homes. There are a range of measures in the Bill to increase private housebuilding, including reforming Compulsory Purchase Orders (CPO). People in low-rent affordable homes with a household income of more than £30,000 (£40,000 in London) will have their rents increased gradually to private rent levels.
