“In setting out a 30-year strategy, we are putting a stake in the ground,” explained Chief Executive Officer Peter Denton. “We want to continue to provide as many new homes as possible, and to continue to invest in our properties, so that our customers can live in modern, energy-efficient homes, where they do not have to worry about building safety.
“We also want to provide homes that meet people’s needs in the long term – whether they are just starting out, raising a family, or enjoying a long and peaceful retirement – giving customers greater mobility, so they can live in the most suitable home for them, depending on their stage in life.
“Having a long-term strategy demonstrates that we appreciate the scale of the challenges we face, from retrofitting thousands of homes to become zero-carbon and meeting higher building safety standards, to exploring new ways of raising the significant funding needed to continue to build more of the right homes, in the right places.”
