Everyone has a home

We believe everyone should have a home. Through our ambitious development programme, our aim is to help as many people as possible to live in safe, affordable, good quality housing in communities they are proud to call home.

We plan to deliver 12,000 homes by 2030 via a planned £2.5bn investment programme.

Our sites come from:

* Land acquisitions
* Joint ventures / partnerships 
* Regeneration of our own estate
* Section 106 agreements
* Community Land Trusts (CLTs).

Financially strong 

We hold a rating of G1 (governance) and V1 (financial viability) meaning we are a well-run and financially sound business. We are a Homes England Strategic Partner which enables us to receive grant funding to support the delivery of our land led and CLT programmes.

Our financial strength means we can support cash flow and provide solutions for, and de-risk elements of, large development schemes for major housebuilders. We also regularly deliver small-scale community-led developments, often in more rural locations. 

We reinvest our profits from open market sale and shared ownership homes to support the development of affordable rented homes. We currently own and maintain over 34,500 homes.

We are always looking for new opportunities. Do get in touch with one of the team below if you have something you’d like to explore with us.
