The Good Homes Alliance are seeking interest for local authorities, housing associations and private developers who are interested in the newly launched Vanguard Campaign and wish to attend an exclusive invite only event in Leeds.
Aims of the campaign
Many local authority housing departments and progressive developers are keen Campaign partners to develop housing to “better than minimum” or “enhanced” standards, as this
will lead to better health and well-being for occupants, help reduce fuel poverty, and create better neighbourhoods and long-term local value.
The Vanguard Campaign will showcase the work of Good Homes Alliance members and partners who are working at the cutting-edge to deliver housing to enhanced sustainability standards. These Vanguards will demonstrate what is possible and how they achieved it, with the aim of inspiring others to do the same. The Leeds launch event provides a fantastic opportunity to hear from developers, architects and housing providers about their experiences of delivering to enhanced standards, to raise questions and to network with colleagues.
