Financial performance 

Last updated - 16 November 2017

2016/17 in Review

The financial year 2016/17 saw another solid year of financial performance with a pre-tax surplus of £25.0m. Our asset base grew by a further £55m to just under £3.1bn. Service transformation and more effective budgetary control have assisted us in delivering a further improvement in key operating and debt service margins.

The profit booking in 2016/17 enables us to maintain our stock of social housing, which remains a priority for us as a social purpose business – and, crucially, to develop a strong pipeline of 1,383 new homes at construction or pre-construction stage. This is in line with our Corporate Strategy objectives – and although we only completed 195 new homes in the year, we did so while largely closing down historic land-bank issues which were the millstone around our neck in the period following the 2009 crash.

From next year, we will see a significant upswing in completions across multiple tenures, matching the needs of our existing and future customer base and making an important contribution to tackling the housing crisis.
