We’re exploring a merger with Lincolnshire Housing Partnership

We are exploring a potential merger with LHP that would create a stronger, more resilient organisation that can better serve tenants and customers. The merger would be equal between both our organisations, and we believe that by combining our strengths, we could offer even better services.

If the merger goes ahead, customer rights, repairs, rent, and charges would not be affected. Our vision is to create a “local and large” organisation with strong community roots and a greater ability to deal with future change.

This is not something that we have decided on lightly. We have spent a lot of time getting to know LHP and how we would work together.

A stronger, more resilient organisation

We have entered into due diligence with LHP to look into all the legal and financial requirements to make sure we are a good fit for one another. This stage is expected to take two to three months. If all goes to plan, we will aim to launch our combined organisation in 2024.

Our frontline teams would be larger and cover a wider area. We would also have more specialist colleagues across the organisation. This would allow us to provide even better services to our tenants and customers.

We would continue to invest in our existing homes, estates, and regeneration plans. We would also continue to build and acquire new homes as we have set out in our current plans.

A better future for tenants and customers

We believe that this merger could increase the quality of our homes, choice, and mobility for people across Greater Lincolnshire.

We will keep you updated on the progress of the merger and will let you know as soon as we have more information.

If you have any questions about the merger, please get in touch with us in any of our usual ways. You can also visit a dedicated webpage where all the latest updates will be shared.
