Vale of Aylesbury Housing has retained the top rating for both governance and viability following an assessment from the Regulator of Social Housing.
The housing provider secured a G1 rating for governance and a V1 rating for financial viability, which it says confirms its position as a leading provider of affordable homes and excellent services to residents.
Chief executive Matthew Applegate said: “We’re pleased to have maintained a G1-V1 rating for governance and financial viability.
“The outcome reflects our strength in these areas and gives our residents and stakeholders assurance on our ability to deliver our plans and future aspirations.
“I’d also like to say thank you to our employees for their continued hard work and dedication throughout the year in these extremely challenging times.”
Chair of the board Stephen Stringer said: “We’re absolutely delighted with this outcome, which demonstrates the quality of our governance, and I’m particularly happy with the V1 rating, given our ambitious plans to deliver even more homes for those in housing need and provide greater access to services.
“This year has certainly demonstrated how important it is to be able to flex and adapt in a changing world, especially if we’re to remain efficient and effective in delivering our plans for residents.
“The regulator’s confidence in our finances, our strategy, and the way we manage our business is evident, and we’re proud of everyone involved at the Trust for such a successful outcome.”
