The shortage of housing continues to impact construction and social housing organisations across the UK. While both the Government and opposition parties have identified that the issue needs to be addressed, talk on changes to the National Planning Policy Framework continues.
While this presents a constant challenge, it is also a huge opportunity for public affairs to shape the future of the sector. DeHavilland’s Housing clients benefit from the market’s most comprehensive stakeholder management tools alongside the in-house expertise of our housing policy team.
DeHavilland political intelligence for housing
Prepare for what is to come
While true change is yet to materialise, consultations are regularly launched (or promised), creating opportunities for you to engage with policymakers at the highest level.
DeHavilland’s Horizon Scanning tools keep you up to date on all the upcoming and ongoing consultations, as well as real-time alerts to the ever-changing political landscape.
Focus nationally and locally
With housing policy shifting from green belt to brownfield, urban to rural, location has become a major factor in housing’s public affairs strategy.
DeHavilland PeoplePoint lists thousands of contacts at a national, regional and local level – from Government to councils – so you can engage the stakeholders who have direct links to their areas.
Use DeHavilland as an extension of your team
With so much potential change, consultations and a general election looming, it can be easy to feel understaffed and overworked.
DeHavilland’s in-house team works alongside you towards the same goals, providing a responsive support service for your queries alongside proactive research and updates.
Prepare for the next general election
While housing is always on the agenda, the imminent general election is an opportunity to thrust it into the spotlight and make it part of each party’s manifesto pledges.
