Both organisations share a similar ethos and community focus, so it feels like a natural next step to align our visions. This partnership will be integral in building comfortable and affordable homes for our residents, but also building a sense of community spirit. This will be incorporated from the planning stages, and we hope it will continue well past the move in date. Developing more high quality, affordable homes has been a keen aim of our organisation for a number of years and we are delighted to launch the first phase through our partnership.
