We hosted the Great Places – great debates in June, giving members the chance to discuss how they see housing associations' roles in creating great places and share good practice from their own organisations.

Read about our visits so far

We organised debates in the Midlands, Yorkshire and the North East. You can read about the discussions in our reports, available below:

Kevin Rodgers, Chief Executive of WM Housing Group and Great Places Commissioner, has also written a blog discussing the role of housing associations in working with communities, as discussed at our debate in Coventry.

Come to our next sessions

The Commission wants to open up the conversation on creating great places as widely as possible. The Commissioners have spoken to hundreds of housing association staff, residents and stakeholders since the programme launched in March 2018, and is keen to broaden this insight with a view to developing its final recommendations in spring 2019.

We're organising three regional events in February 2019 for members to discuss the Commission's findings so far and shape its final recommendations. Click on the links below to find out more and sign up:

If you are unable to make it to one of the events, you can tell us what you think by responding to all or any of the discussion points in the report by email, or just get in touch to let us know what you think about the programme in general.
