Our Challenge 

Leeds City Council and City of York Council have been successful in being selected as one if the final five Challenge Owners in the GovTech Catalyst Challenge. The focus of our challenge is to improve the management of the council’s housing stock, leading to improved housing standards and improved health and wellbeing of tenants. This challenge is about linking the living environment to a person’s health.

How might we use technology to monitor the condition and quality of the council’s housing stock to proactively identify and prevent adverse environmental issues that might impact on the tenant’s health?
