Hyde Seeks To Spend Even More On Windows & Doors

Hyde Housing Association spent £65.9 million last year replacing bathrooms, kitchens, windows and doors – up on the year before and with plans to spend even more in the next decade.

Spending will rocket as the association also plans to be behind the building of more new homes – something other housing providers are having to think about cutting back on in the current economic climate.

CEO, Andy Hulme says: “And we’ll be able to carry out energy-efficiency work to hundreds of homes, thanks to being part of the successful £40.4m Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund bid by the Greener Futures Partnership. We’ll receive about £6m (which we’ll match fund) to improve 951 homes, with new insulation, low-carbon heating systems and new doors and windows.”

Hulme adds: “It’s also important that we continue to build more affordable housing, so we’re delighted to have started construction of 2,105 homes this year – our highest number of starts ever and more than double the number in 2021-22.

“Along with our strategic partnerships with Homes England and the Greater London Authority, we’re working with our investor partners to build tens of thousands of new homes over the next decade.”
