Third Pitch Your Idea contest winner revealed

Albyn Housing Society to present workshop on its ‘Zero Day Voids’ project at SFHA Annual Conference. 

Posted In

The SFHA is pleased to announce the third winning workshop for its ‘Pitch Your Idea’ contest. The workshop, which will take place at the SFHA’s Annual Conference, will be led by Albyn Housing Society on its ‘Zero Day Voids’ project.

Albyn Housing Society’s recent project, Zero Day Voids, involved a process review of its voids and lettings, with a view of aiming to let properties in zero days, wherever possible, but, if not, as quickly as possible. This was a change of mind set for Albyn, as previously it had simply aimed to allocate each property within an 18-day target.

In 2016/2017, Albyn had 268 voids, which were let in an average of 23.5 days. In 2017/18, there were 234 voids, and the average time reduced to 9.8 days. During 2017/18, of Albyn’s 234 voids, 76 were successfully let in zero days.

Come along to the SFHA’s Annual Conference, Housing Scotland, to learn more about Albyn’s project and the measures it put in place to achieve this improvement on performance.

This year’s SFHA Annual Conference, Housing Scotland 2018, takes place on 12 and 13 June at the Radisson Blu Hotel in central Glasgow.

Residential places start from £595 for SFHA members and £925 for non-members or attend as a day delegate for as little as £270. Take advantage of the current offers and book three places to receive a fourth free, or, in support of Year of the Young Person, bring along an apprentice for free for the day when you book a minimum of a day delegate place.

To book your place at this year’s Annual Conference, or for more information, please visit the ‘what’s on’ section of the SFHA website.
