We’re holding a sector-wide conversation about building more homes, and we want to hear from members.
28 November 2018
England needs 340,000 new homes – including 145,000 affordable homes – until 2031, to meet current demand. This includes 90,000 for social rent and 25,000 for shared ownership.
Many housing associations are stepping up to fill this gap with ambitious development programmes, but we can do even more to meet the shortfall.
Starting a conversation
All organisations are different and have varying priorities and needs. There are also external factors such as land availability, so it’s not always straightforward to build more.
This is why we want to hear from members about their own experiences of the supply market, and to work together to create solutions. How can we be more innovative? How can we tackle some of the barriers to building more?
From January, we’ll be running events to share ideas, and discuss and debate how we can take this forward. These will include:
- workshops at chief executive forums, development forums and board events
- two dedicated events
We'll be sharing details and dates on all this soon. In the meantime, if you want to share your thoughts on this you can email the team or speak to your local external affairs manager.
