Housing facing the challenges 4 April 2011

The Department of Social Care Annual Housing Conference was well attended by Local Housing Authorities on Wednesday 30th March 2011 at Mount Murray Hotel, Santon. This year’s theme was – “Housing - Facing the Challenges” and focussed on the key strategic challenges facing public sector housing. Hon. Martyn Quayle, Minister for Social care commented

“The Annual Housing Conference is an opportunity for the Local Housing Authorities to get together, share ideas and best practice. This is particularly relevant this year given the need to address the strategic challenges the Public Housing sector faces in coming years - such as increasing demand, limited funding and rising expectations. The Housing Review that I have commissioned is now underway and the Conference was an opportunity to get Local Housing Authorities involved in the first stages of the project, by seeking their ideas and opinions on Public Sector Housing. It was an interesting day for all involved, which was well attended by the Local Housing Authorities. The morning presentations, including a guest speaker from Guernsey, were both useful and informative and the afternoon workshops gave the opportunity for people to actively get involved by putting their ideas forward.”
