Sound financial management
The Association is prudent in its financial management. This ensures a strong and viable future with the ability to continue to develop new homes and maintain our existing homes and services to a high standard.
The Board and staff operate in an environment which supports the highest levels of integrity: where openness is encouraged across all our activities and with our stakeholders and partners. Our governance is regularly reviewed to ensure appropriate controls and accountability across all areas of our business.
Petersfield HA was founded in 1973 on the initiative of the local Council of Churches who were looking to find ways of providing homes for those who could not afford the high property prices in East Hampshire. The same is very true today. The Board has always comprised of local people with the interests of the local community at heart and as such their area of activity has been largely restricted to Petersfield and the immediately surrounding villages.
Although PHA is a founder member of the Wayfarer Consortium it is also completely independent and wishes to remain so.
We are proud that great emphasis is placed on the fact that being a small association enables the housing staff to be close to the tenants. Our office operates an "open door" policy and no appointments are needed to speak directly to any member of staff.
Emphasis has also has been placed on maintaining the Association's properties to a high standard.
The Association is strong financially. Prudent financial management over the years leaves sufficient funds available to meet the objectives of the Business Plan.
