The Homes and Communities Agency's design and quality standards apply to temporary social housing (TSH) in a limited way. Where TSH is provided for units available for between two and 14 years alternative standards apply. For those TSH schemes lasting between 15 and 29 years both internal and sustainability core standards are mandatory while external environmental standards and additional specific standards are incentivised through the grant levels that can be provided.

Information on how much is spent on bringing temporary social housing up to these standards is not collected centrally.
