Housing Plus Group and Stafford and Rural Homes are to merge, creating an influential housing, care and property group for Staffordshire and Shropshire.

The combined group - including Severnside Housing and South Staffordshire Housing Association - will own and manage around 18,000 homes.

Providing employment, training and apprenticeships for 800 local people, the group will have an annual turnover of almost £100 million.

The group has committed to offering a wider choice of homes, starting work on the construction of 2,000 new homes for rent, shared ownership and outright sale by 2023.

Merger will also bring improved career prospects for staff and the promise of 100 new apprenticeship places in the group and its supply chain within five years of launch.

The group has pledged to remain accountable to its customers, with a customer voice at board level.

The new merged group is expected to launch on 1 October.
