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

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.
