Annual Report 2019/20 – Providing more homes

Welcoming friends to a new home

Throughout 2019/20, we have reaffirmed our commitment to delivering the homes people need, where they are needed most.

Now with more than 23,600 homes, we’re proud to be one of the leading housing providers across the Midlands and East of England, but we want to do even more.


One of the UK's biggest builders

Ranked at number 28 in Inside Housing’s Biggest Builders 2020 survey, we invested £81 million to deliver 568 new homes over the last 12 months, with the overwhelming majority of these being made available for social, affordable or intermediate rent or other low cost home-ownership options such as Shared Ownership or Rent to Buy. 

This year was also our first as a Strategic Partner of Homes England. Over the next five years, this relationship will enable us to deliver one of the largest affordable development programmes in the Midlands and East of England. We aim to deliver a programme of 3,594 more homes by 2025.

Ground-breaking partnerships

This year also saw the completion of the first development from Evera Homes LLP, a ground-breaking partnership of housing associations of which we’re proud to be a part. 

Consisting of ourselves, Cross Keys Homes, Flagship Group and The Hyde Group, Evera Homes plans to deliver an additional 2,000 new homes, mainly across the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined authority area, by 2023. 

De Havilland Gardens, the first development to be delivered by the partnership, has provided 60 new homes in Huntingdon, 24 of which are offered as affordable housing. 


Providing more homes “I am absolutely, 100 per cent happy to be living here.”

Longhurst Group’s affordable homes in Irthlingborough have been described as ‘life-changing’ by people living there.
