Solon and United Communities Housing Associations have agreed to look into the benefits of working more closely together.

Whilst they are in the very early stages, further agreements could lead to a merger and the creation of a new locally-led housing association.

The two associations are of a similar size and both based in Bristol and work closely together. A merger could see a new locally-led housing association with the responsibility for more than 3,300 homes across the region.

Over the next three months the two associations will undertake a detailed due diligence process to see whether to take the proposal further.
