Waterloo Housing Group will be delivering over 2,500 new affordable rented and shared ownership homes across the Midlands and Lincolnshire with our local authority partners, as part of a three year agreement between us and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

The £52 million contract is part of the HCA’s 2015-18 Affordable Homes Programme. This programme is set to make a significant contribution to the Government’s ambition to deliver 165,000 new affordable homes by March 2018, as well as supporting jobs in construction and local economies.

This programme is set to follow the current 2011-15 Waterloo Housing Group partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency that will deliver almost 2,000 new homes.

Dave Pickering, Waterloo Housing Group Chief Executive, said:
“We are very pleased to have been allocated £52 million funding from the HCA for their 2015-18 programme.

"We look forward to working with the Agency and our local authority partners to provide over 2,500 new homes for people in housing need, over the next three years”
