A voice for housing organisations in the south west
A distinct voice for eleven housing organisations across the region has been formed through HAILO.
It enables organisations with strong regional profiles to collaborate on shared projects and issues - pooling our knowledge, expertise and resources.
The members own and build homes with a collective turnover of £900 million. As well as homes for rent, HAILO members build homes for shared ownership, market rent and sale; over the next three years HAILO members will build around 30% of all new homes in the south west.
HAILO members will be making a capital investment of £1.7billion in the region and directly generating 20,000 new jobs through development activity.
HAILO is developing relationships with central government, LEPs, local authorities, housing bodies and mortgage lenders to raise the profile of a range of key issues. These include the economic case for future housing provision, investing in new affordable homes, the impact of welfare reform and the impact of housing organisations on health and well-being.
