The Development Department is responsible for delivering around 300 new homes in the East Midlands each year for NCHA.
A wide range of projects are taken, from inception through to completion, including:
- new build
- general needs
- shared ownership
- supported housing
- …and ancillary accommodation, such as shops, offices and play facilities
Working in close partnership with local authorities, the Homes and Communities Agency, developers and our own in-house design and contract management team, the Development Department provides property acquisition and development services to NCHA, its subsidiaries and partners.
In 2006 NCHA and Longhurst Group founded the Blue Skies Consortium consisting of up to 16 Registered Providers. All of the development services for the Blue Skies Consortium are provided by POD, a company owned and staffed by NCHA and Longhurst Group.
In recent Years NCHA, through POD, has provided development services to several local authorities carrying out their own Council House Building Programme.
