Arcadis’ Richard Jones sees HAs are growing into a role to which they are particularly suited
As housing associations become more confident in their multi-tenure residential developer role, we are seeing them increasingly take the lead position in larger strategic sites where they are assuming the mantel of master developer.
This key strategic role is very aligned to their business model, which provides a lot of emphasis on promoting placemaking, engaging with communities and providing long-term stewardship.

This role has the potential to drive long-term values and returns while also helping to build experience, expertise and capability within the housing association organisations.
