We’ve been holding a sector-wide conversation about building more homes, and we want to hear from members.
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've been asking 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?
Thanks to everyone who has contributed thoughts and ideas so far. If you haven't yet, there's still time to feed in to the conversation by emailing the team.
