Unlocking Local Potential

We were created in July 2020 through the merger of Colne Housing and Greenfields Community Housing.

We believe a bigger, better, bolder partnership approach will help solve the long term housing challenges and unlock potential for residents and communities in the East.

Always committed to communities

We are proud to be the largest Community Gateway Association in the country. This ensures our residents can choose to become shareholders and help make key decisions about their homes, services and communities.
