Housing Revenue Account (HRA) business plan

'Making the future happen in Salford: our housing revenue account business plan 2005 to 2035' sets out our long-term priorities, plans and actions for council housing in our city for the coming years.

We have undertaken a considered approach to developing the Business Plan in partnership with tenant representatives. In November 2003, the council launched 'A fresh start for housing in Salford'. This heralded the beginning of a new approach to housing for Salford. Learning from the past and looking to future opportunities, 'A fresh start for housing in Salford' began a process of transforming our housing markets in Salford.

Underpinning this process has been the most comprehensive engagement and consultation with partners, stakeholders and customers that we have ever undertaken in developing and producing a Business Plan for council housing in the city.

What is the business plan?

The business plan describes our vision for the future of our housing stock and how we intend to meet the investment requirements necessary to meet the Decent Homes standard.

The business plan:

  • identifies the needs for both investment and continuous improvement in service delivery
  • shows the consultative process that we have adopted to best meet the aims and aspirations of our residents
  • demonstrates how the stock will be managed over the forthcoming years, while the action plan shows our strategic intent both in terms of investment and service development

As a whole, the business plan identifies our ability to provide effective stewardship for the stock through our partnerships with tenants, service users and stakeholders.

The purpose of the business plan is to set out:

  • our purpose and mission as a social housing landlord
  • our objectives and standards for the service
  • the strategies to be adopted in order to achieve the objectives and standards for our service
  • a framework for monitoring and evaluating the progress of the housing 'business'
  • information about the authority's plans to be communicated to government, key stakeholders - particularly tenants, other partners and the wider community
