The purpose of the session
The LUHC Committee will hear from Daniel Hewitt, Political Correspondent, ITV News, whose reporting has highlighted a series of concerns regarding poor social housing conditions, and from tenants Angela Price and Nicole Walters, who have previously spoken about their experiences in social housing.
Social housing is housing let at below-market rates by housing associations, local authorities and other providers.
The evidence session will focus on the ITV News investigation and, in particular, on Angela’s and Nicole’s stories. Both approached ITV after experiencing serious damp and mould in their flats that their landlords had repeatedly failed to fix.
The LUHC’s inquiry is examining concerns about the quality of social housing, with a focus on the ability of the Regulator of Social Housing and the Housing Ombudsman to identify and address problems. The inquiry is also focussing on the proposals in the Government’s social housing White Paper aimed at improving the regulatory regime.
