We have responded to the Labour Party’s request for submissions to its housing policy review.
1 February 2018
We welcome the opportunity to feed into the Labour Party’s social housing policy review, and its focus on reconnecting with the purpose of social housing and with those who need genuinely affordable homes.
Our submission sets out how we can work together to deliver great quality, affordable homes at the scale we need. It also covers the importance of maintaining the highest standards in tenant engagement. Tenants are at the heart of social housing and the communities that housing associations invest in. We want to start a national conversation with current and future tenants to ensure their voices are heard.
The submission includes our ideas on:
- Investing in a new generation of affordable homes
- Building at scale and our ambition to deliver
- The importance of quality
- Our responsibility to current and future tenants
