Our development offer
We are one of the UK’s leading housing association developers with over 40 years’ experience. A member of the G15 Group of London’s largest housing associations, we own and manage over 20,000 homes across London, Hertfordshire and the South East. We love to build homes and we take great pride in the quality of the homes we deliver.
We work on the principle that we can and must do everything we can to end the housing crisis. For our ambitious development programme, we have set ourselves the bold target of building at least 1,000 new homes a year for the next five years.
However someone’s life develops, whatever their income, family situation, age or health, we want them to feel there could be a Network home that is right for them. So we offer a wide range of homes for rent and for sale.
Our work includes large scale regeneration projects, homes for market sale and market rent, building prestigious homes for shared ownership, exciting new affordable developments and homes for older people bringing a range of tenures to a variety of customers.
Our approach is about people and partnerships. We know we can achieve so much more by working in partnership than we can by working alone. The key to our development success is the excellent relationships we enjoy with our stakeholders and team of loyal framework partners. We are a valued partner of public and private sector alike – from local authorities to top flight developers.
We offer our development partners a professional service with great passion and commitment underlying everything we do.
