In line with our five-year strategy, which we are now in the third year of, we are looking to build 750 new homes by 2026! This five-year strategy will drive us towards our long-term ambitions for the next 10-20 years and these first five years will be critical in laying the groundwork, investing in properties and people, hitting new targets and really making a difference.
