 Great Places
As an original English garden city,
we are uniquely charged, along with the City Council, to be custodians of the Wythenshawe estate. We have a responsibility to ensure that our legacy for future generations is an estate
in better condition, and more fit for purpose, than the one we acquired.
We recognise that delivering this responsibility at a time when the primary impact of the pandemic will
be on people rather than on the built environment creates a difficult tension; – balancing the pressing needs for additional short term investment in people related services with the need to have a longer term strategic focus on improving estate quality.
Our challenge is increased by specific place based factors, the most significant of which are;
The portfolio age and inherent asset performance
Post Grenfell, the significantly increased Health and Safety compliance requirements
Rising Consumer Standards set by the Regulator of Social Housing
Tenant demographics especially an aging population
Delivering carbon neutral living by 2038 in line with Manchester City Council expectations.
Actions in the Plan to meet these challenges and deliver against the Great Places theme include;
Optimising the performance of our portfolio of homes, informed by data driven insights
Reviewing how we deliver our repairs and maintenance services to improve Value For Money
Investing in the portfolio to meet health and safety compliance requirements over an acceptable period
Reshaping the investment in homes in response to changes in tenant priorities and demographics
Developing an affordable approach to progressing the low carbon agenda.
