Delivering Great Homes

The Delivering Great Homes group shapes, informs and influences our work on new supply and development.

The group supports us by developing and testing new policy ideas, gathering vital market intelligence, informing our responses to government and other key stakeholders; and taking the lead on pieces of work on behalf of the sector.
