To update on progress with two pilot projects for development of new homes on small council Housing sites agreed by Housing Committee in March 2014 and to seek approval to invite proposals for one or two particular small, difficult sites to seek and test out low cost construction solutions.

2)              That approval be given to the proposed Pilot 4 proposal set out in paragraphs 3.9 to 3.15 of the report to invite proposals from potential development partners for modular or system built new homes on small, challenging council housing land sites; such proposals may involve leasing of Housing Revenue Account (HRA) land but any scheme would be subject to prior Housing & New Homes Committee approval and any lease to Policy & Resources Committee approval as set out in paragraph 3.11.
