Our commitment to build new homes

We are committed to building new homes in communities across the West Midlands so that we can give more people a foundation for life.

Working closely with our council and developer partners, we build 650 new homes a year.

We are committed to sharing best practice and pioneering modern methods of construction to deliver homes that people in our communities need.

Partnerships to be proud of

We believe that working in partnership sits at the heart of successful development.

We have close relationships with councils and housing associations across the West Midlands to help deliver the housing people across the region need.

We have a commitment to build 650 new homes a year: 550 at affordable rent and 100 to help people onto the housing ladder.

Delivering homes in Coventry

We have 19,000 homes in Coventry and we’re committed to continuing to build new homes for people in the city.

 

We work very closely with Coventry City Council to achieve this – building hundreds of homes at sites across Coventry every year.

 

This includes an innovative joint venture which will see us build 230 homes on land owned by us and the council.

 

This project has already delivered:

  • A £10m project to redevelop The Chace, a former homeless hostel in Willenhall, into a development of 61 new homes – 41 for outright sale and 20 for affordable rent
  • A £9.5m Tudor Grange development on Charter Avenue, in Westwood Heath, which features 51 affordable rented homes and 21 homes for outright sale
  • A £1.8m development of 14 affordable rented homes on Stretton Avenue and Dunsmore Avenue, in Willenhall.

Matrix Housing Partnership: solving the housing crisis together

In 2019 we joined the Matrix Housing Partnership a group of nine Midlands-based housing associations working together to meet housing need in our region.

 

Together we own and manage 100,000 homes across the region and since the group was established in 2003 its member organisations have delivered around £1bn of new housing across the Midlands.

 

In 2019 we secured a deal as part of this partnership to deliver 680 homes by 2020 as part of Matrix Housing Partnerships’s strategic partnership with Homes England. This deal helped us to ramp our delivery of affordable homes from 400 a year to 550 a year.
