Social Housing Reform Programme

Following DSD’s publication of their report on the first stage of the Social Housing Reform Programme, Cameron Watt discusses the proposals and their potential implications for housing associations.

‘Housing structures that support the provision of social and affordable homes, in thriving communities, where people are proud to live.’ If you do not already know, that is the over-arching vision for DSD’s Social Housing Reform Programme (SHRP). It is a vision NIFHA supports, and it echoes the sentiments of our new ‘Great Homes, Thriving Communities’ strap-line.

Recently I was up at the Assembly in Stormont to hear DSD present on their progress having completed Stage 1 of the SHRP. This phase was to explore in detail Minister McCausland’s proposals for the reform of social housing as instructed by the NI Executive. Stage 2, due to be completed by March 2015, is to ‘develop and get approval for detailed design plans’, with these plans supposed to be implemented by March 2017.
