Development and regeneration
We’re one of the UK’s leading housing association developers.
One of our strategic objectives is to increase the number of homes for people in housing need with an aim to start on 1,000 affordable homes by March 2023 (with an ambition to do more if market conditions and funding allow). We currently have a development pipeline of over 2,400 new homes in nine local authority areas. These range from high rise city developments to low rise homes in rural communities.
In 2021 we received an allocation of over £122 million to deliver 1,000 much needed new affordable homes in partnership with the Greater London Authority (GLA) as part of the new London Affordable Homes Programme.
We’re leading regeneration experts with a specialist team dedicated to improving housing, estates and communities in London and Hertfordshire. We support our residents and the local communities in which we work to have their say through consultations on regeneration projects; using their views to improve where they live.
Rectory Park, Ealing
Completed in August 2020, Network has transformed Rectory Park with 449 new affordable homes (an increase of 179 homes from the 270 properties of the old estate) along with a new community centre and orchard.
Staff from Network Homes and local volunteers planted 70 trees and 5,000 bulbs to create the new orchard. You can view a video of the project below.
Sele Farm, Hertford
With funding from East Herts Council and Homes England, Network spent £34 million on the mixed-tenure regeneration project at Sele Farm. We built 120 new, modern affordable homes and refurbish a further 17 original homes in a part of the estate formally know as the Ridgeway. In total we built 70 homes for affordable and social rent and 50 for shared ownership and we’re proud to have delivered a scheme that caters to a range of housing needs.

Stockwell Park, Lambeth
Stockwell Park is a landmark regeneration project in Lambeth, South London. Investing £212 million, Network has worked closely with residents and SW9 Community Housing to transform 1400 homes. We’ve invested £1.8m in Stockwell Community Centre to upgrade the internal and external facilities available to residents. The centre now holds regular classes, training sessions and community events.
We invested a further £1m to upgrade the Stockwell Hall of Fame – a world-famous space for graffiti artists to paint and a newly refurbished space for the community to play sports. Check out our video on this project below.
Building to high environmental standards is part and parcel of what we do. Every new Network Homes property is built to be warm, energy efficient and economical to run.
Increasing numbers of our properties are served by Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems, making use of energy that would otherwise be wasted, and we have installed solar panels on many of our sites. We provide free electricity to all communal areas, install thermal insulation to cut down heating bills and fit smart meters as standard.
We work closely with the communities in which we develop new homes by running virtual consultations with local residents.
We've worked in partnership with some of the country's top development companies.
