The 3% Challenge:

Will you sign up?

Housing has long been a complex business:

constant changes in legislation, guidance,

funding. It’s now more challenging than

ever – welfare reform, low

development grant, regulatory

changes, commercial competition,

value for money demands. Plus housing

demand up, supply down and

affordability a major obstacle. Which way

should housing providers turn?

At Campbell Tickell, we believe it’s time for a shift. We support calls

for providers to set their own agenda, rather than dance to tunes

played by others. That’s where The 3% Challenge comes in.

The Challenge calls on providers to increase their housing stock by 3%

a year – much more than current output. We know many can manage

this. We also know some can’t – lack of financial capacity or local

housing demand, or a focus on balancing higher output with

increased employment or other community support. We’re not

suggesting ‘one size for all’. But we are saying this is a time to be

creative and stretch to do more for communities.
