P3 Housing stock assessment: at what point do you dispose of a property?

If the aim is to provide good quality housing stock for future generations, the question for social landlords is how will the existing housing stock contribute to that goal? Should energy efficiency be a driver rather than just a consideration?

The answer depends on many factors, including business plans, pressures to claw back income, energy efficiency, type or location of the property and the social goals of the organisation.

Speaking from different perspectives, the panel will take questions and discuss conflicting approaches such as:

  • Disposing of property with or without improvement investment?
  • Retention and reinvestment potential – do you need to dispose?
  • Regeneration and redevelopment potential – a longer-term strategy
  • Tenant management/corporate strategy
  • What do we need to know about energy efficiency in our housing stocks?
  • Assessing energy efficiency and evaluating improvement options for stocks of various types and sizes
