Northern Ireland’s Housing Stock: Evidence, Comparisons and Innovation

9.30 am (registration) – 1.00 pm (light lunch)  Thursday 18 October 2018

Hilton Belfast  4 Lanyon Place, Belfast, BT1 3LP

Over a period of more than four decades, the Northern Ireland House Condition Survey has helped track changes in the fitness, tenure and age profile of the entire housing stock in the region. More recently, the data gathered by the survey has enabled measurement and monitoring of indicators including state of repair, the Decent Homes Standard, the Housing Health & Safety Rating System, fuel poverty and energy efficiency.  The full report on the 2016 survey was published earlier this year.

At this Insight event we will:

  • look at the evidence from the 2016 House Condition Survey on the housing stock across all tenures,
  • place the findings in the wider historical and UK-wide context, and
  • hear how the survey evidence is used to design projects and programmes that improve the energy efficiency of the housing stock

Confirmed Speakers: 

Karly Greene (Head of Research, Northern Ireland Housing Executive)

2016 Northern Ireland House Condition Survey: Key Findings

Overview of the key facts about Northern Ireland’s housing stock: tenure, age, location and indicators including fuel poverty and energy efficiency.

Simon Nicol (BRE)

History and Comparisons

BRE provides technical and modelling services for housing stock surveys in England, Scotland and Wales, as well as the Northern Ireland House Condition Survey.  Simon will discuss findings through time and across the UK regions, and some of the key measures that can be derived from the survey data

Robert Clements (Sustainable Development Unit Manager, Northern Ireland Housing Executive)

Improving the Energy Efficiency of the Housing Stock

As Northern Ireland’s Home Energy Conservation Authority, the Housing Executive seeks to identify practical, cost-effective ways to improve the energy efficiency of residential accommodation in the region.  Progress on the energy efficiency target is measured through the House Condition Survey (HCS) and Robert will outline some of the ways in which the Sustainable Development Unit works with a range of partners to improve domestic energy efficiency and reduce fuel poverty across all tenures, while protecting the environment.

I joined LANI because I felt I needed more support and information than I had been getting. In attending the General Meetings I have met many other landlords who face the same issues as myself and I have been able to keep myself up to date with the changes taking place.

SP, Lisburn

I joined LANI because it seemed like the most professional body representing landlords in Northern Ireland. I wouldn’t have known about the changes to the landlords rates or saved myself that 15% on all my properties.

LJ, Dungannon

I have found my membership very beneficial. I now belong to an organisation that is dedicated to our profession and which knows the laws and legislation that go along with it. They are able to keep us up to date with impending changes and represent the Private Landlord at many levels of Government.

JMcS, Newcastle

The advice line is brilliant; whenever I have a problem the office staff takes my enquiry and someone gets back to me with the most up-to-date information.
