Welcome to #Jeremytalks (opens new window) and this week’s sector news from the Housing LIN.
We are delighted to report that the Housing LIN has become a signatory to the Design Commission for Wales' Placemaking Wales Charter (opens new window). With our commitment to the HAPPI design principles, we firmly support the Charter's 6 core components and the inclusive approach to placemaking, including creating age-friendly homes and communities.
In other news, 11 HAPPI-inspires projects have been shortlisted for this year's Housing Design Awards (opens new window). The submissions include a selection of extra care housing, retirement villages, almshouse provision and cohousing. The Housing LIN is proud to be a sponsors of these awards and the quality of the shortlisted schemes demonstrate how HAPPI has become a mainstay of these awards with winners to be announced in September.
And following the announcement of the TAPPI2 coproduction lead last month, with permission for Inside Housing, we release a blog by Coproduction Works' Jolie Goodman in which she looks at how social landlords can go about making consumer regulation changes.
