We are pleased to be publishing our fourth Annual Report, covering activity and performance during what has been a particularly busy twelve months. Our Strategic Business Plan made a number of commitments and this report demonstrates our achievements against that ambitious plan, and the significant progress we have made in delivering on those promises.
Progress in bringing our homes up to the Decent Homes Standard remains well ahead of target with the completion of refurbishments at Windsor Court and Clos Des Sables. We are also nearing the completion of the major refurbishment of Convent Court, which will include the installation of an appropriate sprinkler system, something we will then programme across all of our high rise buildings.
We have seen demand for home ownership increase significantly and are committed to making this a reality for Islanders. Andium Homebuy, our deferred payment scheme, remains popular but we have recognised that selling existing stock is simply not enough to meet demand. We have worked hard to obtain the necessary approvals for schemes on new build sites; schemes which will see homes remaining in the affordable bracket in perpetuity which is a major step forward for First Time Buyers.
The report covers other key achievements, such as the acquisition of a number of sites in St Helier to assist in the regeneration of the North of Town, outcomes from the Jersey Care Enquiry which see us branching into the provision of Keyworker homes and the implementation of a new industry leading Housing Management and Finance System.
