The new investment framework and need to increase sustainability means good asset management is increasingly important.
New investment framework
Effective asset management, through conversions and disposals, is an important factor in securing funding under the affordable homes programme 2011-15.
Sustainability of existing stock
For associations to improve the sustainability of their 2.5 million existing homes they need to set long term targets for their stock and develop an asset management programme to achieve these targets. Achieving high levels of energy efficiency in existing homes is increasingly important to safeguard residents against rising fuel prices and the risk of fuel poverty. By greening their stock, associations will contribute to reducing carbon dioxide emissions and the associated risks of global warming.
