Housing Associations and Housing Co-operatives

Housing Associations

Housing Associations are an alternative provider of affordable rented housing to Redditch Borough Council and private landlords. Within the Redditch Borough, 25 Housing Associations own and manage stock, which include family housing, smaller accommodation and specialist/supported accommodation for the elderly.

Redditch Borough Council have negotiated legally binding "Nomination Agreements" with these Housing Associations which mean that at first let (on a new build site) 100% of nominations are taken from the Redditch Home Choice register and at second and all subsequent lets, 75% of nominations are from the Redditch Home Choice Register, so when a bid is placed by an applicant on Home Choice, this will generate a short list of interested applicants which will then be sent to the Housing Association for a tenant to be selected.   

Redditch Co-operative Homes

Redditch also has an award winning Co-operative Housing Association called "Redditch Co-operative Homes" which owns over 200 properties in the Borough. Redditch Co-operative Homes differs from many other organisations as it is a tenant led and managed housing co-operative, where the tenants have an active role in the daily management of their homes and communities and are central to many of the key decisions affecting their homes. Co-operative Tenants are heavily involved in the design and development of new communities.
