Building new homes

Housing associations build thousands of good quality new homes a year for sale, for rent, and for affordable home ownership.

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, and they want to do even more.

We’ve been holding a sector-wide conversation with our members to explore how we can build more homes. Find out more and get involved.
