As you may already know, we are looking to merge with the Jephson Group – a venture which could provide thousands of additional homes.
Together with Jephson, we have now submitted a formal application to the Homes and Communities Agency. If approved, our new group will be effective from January 2015.
We will keep you up to date with any progress, and would like to involve you, our residents in decision making to make sure that we continue to deliver the best service.
To do this we have selected a group of residents from Raglan and the Jephson group to create a Sounding Board.
The purpose of the Sounding Board is to ensure that we meet our tenants’ needs throughout the merger, and the group will help us to decide how to effectively communicate the changes that will be taking place.
We are in the middle of a housing shortage. There is a serious lack of the right homes, built at the right price and in the right location. To solve the crisis more homes need to be built.
The National Housing Federation’s Yes to Homes campaign asks communities to say “yes” to development in areas that need it most.
