East Boro Housing Trust
East Boro Housing Trust and Aster Group created a new partnership on 31st March 2020.
The partnership enables the two organisations to increase their capacity to build homes, invest in their communities and provide customers with increased efficiencies and an enhanced digital offer.
Aster and East Boro – which build, own and manage homes across the south of England – announced their intention to form a partnership in November 2019 before entering a six-week consultation period with shareholders.
The completion of the partnership sees East Boro become part of Aster Group while retaining its brand, board and stock. There will be no interruption to the services provided by the organisations to their customers and no change to the roles of employees.
The partnership adds the 427 homes owned and managed by East Boro to Aster’s nearly 30,000-home portfolio.
East Boro was founded in 1960 and is based in Wimborne, Dorset. Aster owns and manages social rent, affordable and shared ownership homes in 11 counties across the south of England (Berkshire, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Sussex, Wiltshire).
