Decent Homes Standard – we want your views

The Social Housing White Paper announced a review of the Decent Homes Standard.  The Northern Housing Consortium is pleased to have been invited by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to be a core participant in the Review sounding board.

The first phase of the review is considering the case for criteria within the Decent Homes Standard, and what might be included in a new standard. The second phase will consider refining decency in more detail.

In order that we can be sure we’re representing our members’ views effectively within the Review, we’d be grateful if you members could complete a short survey. Not all the questions are mandatory.  Please complete the survey by Thursday 4th February.

Take the survey and sign up to keep in touch on the review.

Commenting, NHC Executive Director (Policy and Public Affairs) Brian Robson said

“We’re delighted to be asked by MHCLG to join the Review sounding board. The NHC has built an strong evidence base on housing quality in the North over recent years, and we’re working hard to do the same on net zero. This is a great opportunity to make sure the new standard works for the North – but to do that, we want to hear from our members. Please complete the survey and let us know your views.”

The NHC survey asks for member views on the current standard, and areas Government have highlighted for focus in the new standard. Members can also sign-up to keep in touch with the NHC’s work on the review.

Please complete the survey by Thursday 4th February.
