How we develop new homes
We've got ambitious plans to deliver 400 new affordable homes a year.
And four dedicated teams who aim to make this happen:
Our growth team
Our growth team is responsible for finding appropriate redevelopment sites and negotiating contracts with developers. They also liaise with the Homes & Communities Agency and local councils to boost our financial firepower.
Our delivery team
Our delivery team are on hand to oversee the construction and completion of projects. They also work with other consultants to achieve the best possible homes for customers without breaking the bank.
Our regeneration team
Getting people involved has been key to our success in the areas of site and property regeneration. Our multi-million pound regeneration development projects are inspiring more inclusive communities and have been recognised nationally.
Our regeneration team are responsible for the whole life of a regeneration project, from securing planning to arranging the relocation of residents and liaising with the wider community.
Our new homes are funded through a combination of grants and private finance (loans and bond finance). Grants come mostly from central government via the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), but also from local authorities and others. We have a Framework Delivery Agreement with the HCA for 2011 – 2015 through which we're delivering over 300 new homes. Follow the link below to see which companies we're using to help us deliver this programme.
Our home ownership team
Our shared ownership team are here to tell you all you need to know about part-buy part-rent and other low cost routes to home ownership.
They're a small friendly team of professionals with a great track record and very high customer satisfaction.
