House Condition Survey User Engagement
Regular user engagement enhances the value of House Condition Survey statistics and a House Condition Survey User Engagement Group was therefore set up to facilitate the Housing Executive in providing information to, and gathering feedback from, key users of House Condition Survey statistics.
The group meets approximately once a quarter. If you would like to become a member of the House Condition Survey User Engagement Group please contact Donna McLarnon by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone 028 95982547.

Insight housing market intelligence exchange
The Housing Executive holds Insight events twice a year, allowing senior staff from across the housing sector to engage in discussion and debate, and provide feedback on their views about the critical and emerging issues facing the housing sector in Northern Ireland.
Following Insight events, briefings summarising the information that was shared and the discussions that took place are published on the Housing Executive’s website.
In October 2018 the event focused on the key findings of the 2016 House Condition Survey, and the summary report was launched.

The March 2019 event covered a wide range of housing issues, including a presentation from Building Research Establishment (BRE) on the cost to improve energy efficiency in Northern Ireland. The costs were estimated using data from the 2016 House Condition Survey.
