The Local Authority and Right to Buy Division, in the friendly Social Housing Directorate of MHCLG, is at the heart of delivering two key Government priorities: driving up housing supply by supporting Local Authorities to build more and increasing home ownership through the flagship right to buy scheme, enabling more people to have the security and stability of owning a home of their own.
