About Blue Skies

A number one developer within the East Midlands.

Achieving high-quality affordable housing developments isn’t always easy.  Schemes can be technically demanding, time-consuming and subject to intensive negotiations.

With the range of housing options available – unit types, different tenures, scheme densities, government initiatives – it’s important to choose the right development partner for the job.  That means someone who knows local communities and networks, will adapt to changing circumstances and has the technical and financial skills to make a project stack up.

Blue Skies Consortium is a partnership of 15 housing associations working together to build high-quality affordable homes.  Created in 2006, Blue Skies works primarily in the East Midlands and East of England, but also stretches into the West Midlands and Yorkshire and Humberside regions.  Consortium members collectively own more than 46,000 homes, creating successful communities and providing excellent housing support.
 

News update

(July 2013) - Blue Skies Consortium secured over £8.2 million to boost the number of new homes being built in the region. 

The allocation is the sixth largest nationally and forms part of the Homes and Communities Agency’s affordable homes guarantee programme.

To accommodate the growing numbers of people struggling to find a home, consortium members will deliver 635 new homes by 2016 across Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire.
