Network Homes is one of just seven housing associations in the country with ‘trusted partner’ status for development from the Government’s Homes and Communities Agency.
It manages over 20,000 homes, in 36 local authority areas, mainly in London and the Home Counties and aims to start around 1,000 new homes a year for sale and rent.
The new framework will run until the end of 2020.
The housing association has just purchased 0.66 hectares of land in Southall, Ealing, to create a £200m regeneration scheme of 500 homes plus substantial commercial space.
Subject to planning work will start on site in spring 2018 with phased handovers of properties between 2020 and 2022.
