Housing stock quality and future investment needs
The stock of over 4 million social homes in the Country are a vital asset and the foundation to the business of registered providers.
However, the need for increased investment to meet the requirements of Building Safety, Zero Carbon and a revised Decent Homes Standard, means more resources will be invested in them over the next 10-15 years than they have for the previous decade.
We were delighted to hear from Keynote speaker Jonathan Walters on how providers are meeting this challenge, on the risk associated with the existing stock in a world of rising customer expectations and a need for continued construction of new social homes to meet the housing crisis. Also joining us were industry experts Helen Spencer, Duncan Smith and Joy Whinnerah.
