We officially join the Matrix Housing Partnership allowing us to increase affordable housing
Earlier this year we announced a major new deal with the Matrix Housing Partnership.
This deal will allow the organisation to increase the delivery of affordable homes from 400 to 550 per year.
The £23m deal allows us to build 680 homes over the next three years.
Off the back of this deal, today, we have officially become a member of the Matrix Housing Partnership.
The partnership is a group of nine social landlords who manage more than 100,000 homes across the Midlands.
The partnership has been in existence for 16 years and last year it signed a strategic partnership agreement with Homes England worth £77m to provide 2,257 homes.
Our Chief Executive, Kevin Rodgers, said: “Joining Matrix Housing is a great move for us and makes sense after we agreed to deliver 680 homes earlier this year in the strategic partnership with Homes England.
“We have great relationships with other organisations in our region and now we have joined the Matrix housing Partnership we can work even closer with them.”
The Matrix Housing Partnership has committed to build 3,700 additional new affordable homes by March 2022.
