NEWS – Funding and Partners

We’re very excited to announce that we have finally received a signed contract from Homes England for the Community Housing Fund. This will support the development of the early stages of our project, and help us identify a site, work up our business plan, obtain legal, environmental and sustainability advice and appoint an architect. We raised a glass a while ago when we heard that we had been successful in our bid, but it’s only now that the paperwork has been finalised!


This has meant that we are also now in a position to sign a partnership agreement with Great Places who are one of the largest home building housing associations in the North. We have been building up a strong relationship with Great Places over several years, and they are keen to bring their expertise in housing development to work with us to create housing that will meet our needs.  Signing a partnership agreement with Great Places brings us a step closer to realising our dream. We are clear about what we want, and Great Places are committed to helping us achieve it.
