Delivering 152,000 homes

SBHG’s new homes are part of 88,000 being built by PlaceShapers in the next five years.

PlaceShapers is a network of more than 100 community-focused housing associations. Its new We Build report sets out the increasing contribution that members have made - and will make - to solving the housing crisis.

In the next five years, SBHG will build 357 homes.

SBHG’s head of development, Shirley Sylvester 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 Build was launched at the Chartered Institute of Housing conference on Tuesday 27 June. The campaign shows that:

» PlaceShapers will complete 88,000 new homes in the next five years. This is a 12% overall increase on existing housing stock and 35% of homes predicted to be built by the housing association sector by 2022.
» Over a 10-year period, PlaceShapers are ramping up to deliver an additional 152,000 new homes by 2027, almost doubling our recent output.
» PlaceShapers members have built over 52,000 new homes in the last six years with at least 11,400 in the past year alone.

PlaceShapers chair Sinéad Butters said: “We see the housing crisis every day 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 across all tenures by 2027.”
