Our webinar yesterday centred around Jonathan discussing the current Decent Homes Standards and giving a broad glimpse on how the new standard is shaping up focussing on 3 key areas:
- Holistic properties
- Carbon neutrality
- Green space
Devonshires Solicitors Partner Lee Russell commented extensively on the legal challenges around green space and how local authorities along with registered providers will need to work together alongside the private sector to achieve such goals.
One of the key pressures providers face is the balance of investment in new homes and existing stock, a question asset Director of LiveWest Nathan Cronk tackled head on by targeting smart regeneration schemes which could serve both new and existing stock.
Some excellent participation from the audience took us deeper into the nuances.
