About us

As the government’s housing and regeneration agency we believe that affordable, quality homes in well-designed places are key to improving people’s lives. Together with our partners, we’re accelerating the pace of house building and regeneration across the country, as we seek to deliver homes and places people are proud to live in – for generations to come.

We make this happen by using our powers, expertise, land, capital and influence to:

  • form partnerships that bridge the gap between the public and private sector, in order to deliver new homes and regenerate places that meet local needs and aspirations
  • champion the creation of sustainable homes, communities and places that are brilliantly designed for the people that live there now, and in the future
  • support the creation of a more resilient, diverse and innovative housing sector by helping new market entrants and SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) grow, encouraging greater use of modern methods of construction and by promoting the utmost attention to building safety

It’s an ambitious and exciting agenda that can only be achieved through collaboration and commitment. Whether you’re a local authority, housebuilder, investor, developer – whatever your role in the built environment, we’re your partner in housing and regeneration, and we’re here to help.
