UK Housing Data Standard

Reactive Repairs consultation now open!

The current phase of Standards development has focused on Reactive Repairs. HACT and OSCRE have been working with Coastline, Halton Housing Trust, L&Q, Lewisham Homes, Magna, Metropolitan Thames Valley, Poplar HARCA and Settle to create these new standards supported by Housemark and Pilon.

The work extends existing use cases around work order management particularly in the areas of scheduling with the customer and day-of-repair status updates. It also added several code lists to support more detailed property typologies, including construction methods 

We now need your feedback on the work before it is formally published at the end of November

This consultation will be open until Wednesday 14th November. Please submit any feedback or questions by this closing date. All feedback will be considered by the project team who have proposed these changes and, particularly where changes have impacted existing use cases or data model entities, by the OSCRE team.

The drafts and feedback forum are hosted on the OSCRE website you will need to register (free) to view the Draft Standards and to provide comments and feedback
