Iain MacBeath, Director of Health and Community Services, Hertfordshire County Council
"As a county council, housing provision is an area where collaboration with our district and borough council colleagues as the Housing Authority and our 26 housing providers is key.
The Housing LIN produced an excellent report, commissioned by the Hertfordshire Health and Wellbeing Board (HWBB), to bring all partners together to realise our strengths and show other areas of the country where obstacles to providing appropriate housing have been overcome.
Their recommendations clearly flowed from interviews with all partners, were pragmatic and universally accepted by the HWBB. Thanks to the Housing LIN we are now implementing them."
