Answer for One Housing Group

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Written response from the Mayor Between April 2011 and March 2013 One Housing Group delivered 1,120 affordable housing completions and is committed to delivering a further 400 affordable homes by March 2015.

Providers of affordable housing in London are contractually bound to ensure that the homes they deliver comply with standards outlined in the Affordable Housing Capital Funding Guide and the London Housing Design Guide. Consumer standards for social landlords are governed by the Regulatory Framework of the Homes and Communities Agency. The performance of providers is assessed at quarterly and annual contract review meetings chaired by senior officers of the Housing and Land Directorate.
