More flats, higher standards, renovation of all uninhabited flats, reduction of the number of heating stoves, support for the most vulnerable, and residents without rent debt – these are the priorities of the new municipal flats’ management plan for the upcoming 5 years.


On Thursday, 14th December, Warsaw councillors adopted the 2018-2022 Multi-Annual Programme for Managing the City of Warsaw Housing Resources, and the Flats 2030 Housing Policy.
We are planning to increase the number of flats, while investing in heightening the standards of the existing flats. We assume that all uninhabited flats available in formal and technical terms will be renovated. There also will be further rent reductions for Warsaw's tenants,” said Michał Olszewski, Deputy Mayor of Warsaw.

Seven priorities of the new housing programme
The new 2018-2022 Multi-Annual Programme for Managing the City of Warsaw Housing Resources includes:
 1. More flats for Warsaw residents
The city will continue to build municipal-owned flats. At least 600 housing units will be built in the years to come due to district investments, while over 1400 new flats will be provided thanks to the Communal Building Societies. Moreover, the number of social housing units will grow by 3 thousand.
 2. Higher standards of municipal flats
On the one hand, this will include connecting the flats to the central heating network, and on the other hand, it means excluding from use certain city-owned buildings in a poor technical condition and defective flats without bathrooms or kitchens. All flats will be equipped with new plumbing and kitchen elements, and modernised. Between 2007 and 2017, the City of Warsaw spent over PLN 5.5 billion for the maintenance of municipal flats, out of which 38% (PLN 2.1 billion) is income from rent payments.
 3. All uninhabited flats renovated
Between 2018 and 2019, we are planning to renovate all uninhabited flats in buildings which are available in formal and technical terms. We will create a special financial reserve of PLN 40 million for this purpose.
 4. 0% of coal-heated flats
We are planning to carry out further connections of flats to the central heating network and to liquidate all coal-based heating furnaces,
