Eastlight named in housing's Top 50 biggest builders

A view of our Mount Hill development in Halstead

Eastlight has been recognised for its efforts to tackle the housing crisis in Essex and Suffolk after being included in Inside Housing’s annual ‘Top 50 Biggest Builders’ list for the first time.

As part of our ambition to build more homes for the thousands of people in our communities who need them, we built 324 high-quality and affordable homes last year.

This meant we placed at number 45 in the list of housing associations that are building the most UK homes.

Our ambitious development plans, which include building 449 in this financial year, means we are 42nd in the list of housing association pipelines.

That pipeline includes our new Eastlight-led 71-home development at Mount Hill, Halstead, which will see our first show home open in the coming weeks.

Andrew Allocca, Head of Development Delivery & Aftercare, said: "We are proud that Eastlight is in the Top 50 Biggest Builders, because it demonstrates our ambition and drive to not only deliver a large programme of new homes, but to improve the lives of those who live within the communities we work in.”

"We do this by providing low-cost home ownership, as well as both affordable and social rent, to create balanced, sustainable communities.”
