Shropshire Housing Group has announced that it is joining together, as equal partners, with Herefordshire Housing to form Connexus, a new social housing group working across Shropshire, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire.

Some key ambitions for Connexus include increased provision of housing for sale and market rent alongside a programme of shared ownership and affordable rented accommodation.

The organisation will be the largest developer in the Marches with plans for some 1,458 homes up until 2023.

But both organisations see their core purpose to be more than "bricks and mortar providers" and share an ambition to develop homes alongside care and support services.

Notting Hill Housing and Genesis Housing Association have agreed in principle to merge, a move that would create one of the country's largest housing associations.

The new organisation, Notting Hill Genesis, will have 54,000 homes across London and 64,000 across London and the South East, half of which will be general needs homes with social or affordable rents.

The new organisation will serve a total of 170,000 residents and be the largest provider of shared ownership tenure in the country.

Both Notting Hill Housing and Genesis Housing were founded in different forms during the 1960s by people of faith in west London, with the aim of housing the working poor and giving them a secure home with which to build their future.
