Housing

Decent Homes and council housing finance

Since 2001 we have reduced the number of non-decent homes in the social housing sector by over 50 per cent. Communities and Local Government is determined to build on this success to improve the living conditions of social tenants across the country.

By 2010 we expect 95 per cent of all social housing to meet a decent standard. We are negotiating with some social landlords to set dates for delivery beyond 2010, where it is necessary to achieve better value for money, or higher standards of housing.

For a general definition of the Standard please see - What is a decent home? .

For detailed guidance social housing landlords should visit the Homes and Communities Agency's decent homes page (external link).
