Building homes for a brighter future

What we do

We deliver around 1,800 new homes a year for a range of tenures - with plans to build 2,400 new homes a year by 2026. We invest over £280m annually on new development; making the most of our relationships with central and local government and our ability to build successful and sustainable partnerships with house builders.

Our independence and organisational strength allows us to build the right mix of traditional social housing and commercial tenures to meet local need. Our not-for-profit status enables us to deliver a broader range of housing to meet local need.

We see joint ventures as a way to use our financial strength and assets creatively, working together with partners in a way that delivers a positive outcome for everyone.
