#webuild campaign is stepping up to deliver 88,000 homes.
Aspire Housing will build 1,500 new homes in the next five years as part of 88,000 being built by PlaceShapers to tackle the national housing crisis.
PlaceShapers is a network of more than 100 community focused housing associations. A report published today, titled ‘We Build’ sets out the increasing contribution that members have made, and will make to solving the housing crisis.
#webuild is being launched at the Chartered Institute of Housing conference.
- PlaceShapers will complete 88,000 new homes in the next five years. This is a 12 per cent increase on existing housing stock and 35 per cent of homes predicted to be built by the housing association sector by 2022
- Over a 10 year period, PlaceShapers will deliver an additional 152,000 new homes by 2027, almost doubling recent output
- PlaceShapers members have built more than 52,000 new homes in the last six years with at least 11,400 in the past year alone
PlaceShapers chair and Chief Executive of Aspire Housing, Sinéad Butters, said: “As a PlaceShaper we build affordable homes that respond to local need. Our homes are more than bricks and mortar. Our homes build and shape communities.
“We see the housing crisis everyday as people are priced out of decent, secure and genuinely affordable homes.
“We are part of the solution and are stepping up to deliver 152,000 new homes of all tenures by 2027.”
