Inside Housing Round Table: A New Future for Decent Homes03 December 2018
Earlier this year, the government’s Social Housing Green Paper called for a review of the Decent Homes Standard, to consider whether it is demanding enough.
The guiding principle of the review is that homes should be safe and decent. The government also indicated it would consider the outcome of consultation on its Clean Growth Strategy about whether the energy performance of social homes should be upgraded to Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Band C by 2030.
Against this backdrop, an Inside Housing round table - hosted in association with new members of The Housing Forum, CIT - saw senior asset management professionals gather to discuss government plans to revamp the Decent Homes Standard and what they think needs to be addressed, in addition to exploring what the future of asset management in the sector could – and should – look like.
