Introducing our new vision and corporate plan
Our new Vision has an increased focus on providing an excellent service for our customers and on safety and sustainability. This better reflects our ambitions as an organisation.
Our Corporate Plan
Our new Corporate Plan is ambitious and challenging. It sets out our objectives for the next five years.
Our immediate priority is to make sure that the homes we provide are safe and that our services are of an excellent standard. The need for new homes has never been greater, and we plan to continue to build affordable homes, working in new partnerships to help us achieve our targets. This plan also marks the start of our campaign to be a sustainable, zero carbon business.
Our operating environment
The impact of COVID-19 has forced us to change the way we work, and has also had wider economic impact that is likely to affect many of our residents.
We must continue to be financially prudent in order to weather the potentially volatile economic outlook.
We have set ourselves ambitious targets for customer satisfaction by the end of the corporate plan period, including:
- 88% customer satisfaction for those who rent their home from us
- 65% customer satisfaction for this who are shared owners or leaseholders
- 85% customer satisfaction with our repairs service.
Our plan sets out our commitment to engaging purposefully with our customers, listening and acting on their views, and involving them in what we do. We will make sure that it is easier and more convenient to contact us and our services are delivered reliably and to an excellent standard.
Building new homes
We are committed to providing homes to people who need them, and will continue to build new affordable homes within the limits of our financial capacity, with a focus in our core area of operation.
- 2,250 new homes handed over during the plan period
- 1,600 homes added to the development pipeline each
- a 50/50 mix between affordable rent and Low Cost Home Ownership over the plan period.
Safe and sustainable homes
We are committed to doing our job as a landlord to make sure our properties are safe and kept in good repair for customers. We plan to undertake a major investment programme in our existing homes so that we are taking the right actions to keep them in good condition and safe for residents and so that we reduce carbon emissions and other environmental harms.
- 100% compliance with health and safety regimes
- 100% compliance with Decent Homes regulatory requirements
- A detailed plan to achieve net zero carbon by 2050
- Starting a programme of works, with the aim of ensuring the majority of our stock reaches EPC C standard by 2030.
- Pilot projects to test how we can provide low and zero carbon sources of heating
- Compliance with new building safety regulatory system for high rise buildings
- Commit to an Environment Strategy to address climate change resilience, energy efficient and excellent management of waste and hazardous products.
