Welcome to Raglan

Merger gets the green light

We are very pleased to announce that the Homes and Communities Agency has given the green light for the merger of Jephson and Raglan to go ahead. This is a significant step forward in the merger process.

Our new organisation will be called Stonewater and will be one of the UK’s most significant social housing providers, both in terms of assets and geographic spread with around £160 million in turnover and £1.6 billion in assets.

There are some formalities which have to be completed and these should be finalised in time for the merger to take effect from 1 January 2015.
 
Jephson and Raglan are now working hard to bring together the best from both organisations and we will be engaging with residents on all the main changes arising from the merger.
 
To keep all of our residents informed, we have sent out a letter from our Chief Executive, Nicholas Harris, and the content of the letter can be found here.
 
We also sent out a ‘Questions & Answers’ sheet designed to answer some of your anticipated questions, but you can also ask other questions in all of the usual ways, find this here.
 
Our goal is to create a new and innovative organisation which delivers a range of benefits for residents and helps meet the ever growing need for quality homes and services.

 

  

New Sounding Board involves our residents

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.

 

Say Yes to Homes

Yes to HomesWe 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.
