In London the Mayor has established the Mayor's Housing Forum (MHF). The primary role of the MHF is to act as an advisory body to the Mayor in the development of the Mayor's Housing Strategy and its implementation. It also aims to share information and develop ideas about key housing issues in London and to receive and consider key documentation on research, strategies and policy initiatives; and the relevant strategies of member organisations.
The MHF is chaired by the Mayor's Office and the Greater London authority provides the secretariat. The MHF meets quarterly.
In the West Midlands there are a series of three interrelated voluntary partnerships, who work together to deliver on the housing agenda.
Strategic Advisory Panel, which provides a wide forum for planning, environment and housing policy issues to be debated.
Regional housing executive oversees the development and delivery of the regional housing strategy, and recommends investment in line with the regional housing strategy.
West Midlands Regional Housing Advisory Forum; this is an officer-led partnership group, which supports the activities of the regional housing executive.
The partnerships are all voluntary and receive no funding.
