The finances and sustainability of the social housing sector

Inquiry

This inquiry seeks to examine the finances and sustainability of the social housing sector in England. In recent years the financial pressures for social landlords have increased as they face the demands of building new homes, retrofitting existing stock to improve energy efficiency, remediating stock with cladding and other building safety issues, and tackling issues arising from damp and mould. This inquiry will explore what these demands means for the social housing sector, and how it might try to meet all these priorities.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Friday 12 May 2023.
