|The theme for this event was the challenge for social housing providers in working with private leaseholders to undertake refurbishment projects – particularly installing energy efficiency and renewable energy measures. The meeting discussed issues around the terms of leases which often make it hard for works to proceed, and focused on the proposals for leasehold reform that Future Climate and others have developed. The meeting also addressed the financial, communication and engagement issues that can make it difficult for leaseholders to pay for measures and lead to conflict between social landlords and leaseholders. Thirty-five people attended the workshop including representatives from government departments, first tier tribunal judges and managers from housing associations and local authorities. The Law Commissioner, Prof. Nicholas Hopkins provided the opening address. Chatham house rule applied, but see below for presentations, notes of the facilitated discussion are also available.
