Coastline named on biggest builder list

Coastline Housing has earned a place in a top ten list of the fastest growing housing associations in the country, making it the only social landlord to earn a place on this list for five years in a row.

 

The Cornish housing charity has come in at number seven in a list looking at how many new homes housing associations were building as a percentage of their current stock.

 

The list has been compiled and issued by Inside Housing, who undertook a detailed sector-wide survey of development completions by housing associations in the year 2021/22.

 

Last year, Coastline developed 200 new homes, bringing its total stock in ownership or management up to 5,059. This was a growth of 4% within a 12-month period.

 

Mark Duddridge, Chair of Coastline Housing, said: “We’re incredibly pleased to be reaching this national top ten list once more. It’s great to see that Coastline, although not a big housing association compared to many others in the sector, is making a genuine impact. The most important thing however, is the real difference these homes will have made to individuals and families in Cornwall who were in housing need.”

 

Coastline has become involved in the Homes for Cornwall movement in the past year, adding its voice to a collection of influential business leaders and decision makers in the county who have all pledged to come together to find innovative solutions to the housing crisis.

 

Allister Young, CEO, adds: “Cornwall’s housing crisis continues to bite in a serious way and anything we can do, alongside our partners in the county, to help solve this issue is something that we are fully committed to.”

 

Over the next four years, Coastline has committed to developing 1,000 more new homes in the county. The charity also continues to help hundreds of people each year who are rough sleeping or without a permanent home of their own at its purpose-built homeless centre near Redruth.
