On 21 February the Department published a research report entitled "Decent Homes in the Social Sector" (www.communities.gov.uk/housing). The research was undertaken by the Building Research Establishment to help improve our understanding of what work local authorities and registered social landlords are doing to make homes decent and the impact of such work. We also monitor the progress of delivery of decent homes through the English house condition survey and the statistical returns made by social landlords.
