Greenfields Community Housing took over Braintree District Council's homes in November 2007, following a tenant and leaseholder ballot for transfer in December 2006. We have around 8,100 homes and 450 leasehold properties all over the Braintree District, which covers Braintree, Witham and Halstead and many surrounding towns and villages.
Our Vision and Values reflect our commitment to putting tenants and leaseholders at the very heart of everything that we do. Our vision is:
"To work together to provide the best homes and services to achieve the best for people in our communities."
Greenfields is established with National Housing Federation model rules, amended to reflect the Community Gateway approach to resident involvement and governance, giving tenants and leaseholders a more significant influence in how their housing service is run.
Our Strategic Plan 2012-15 explains our commitments to our people during this time, including building new homes, helping to reduce our tenants' fuel bills and providing apprenticeship and work experience opportunities for young people.
Creating a diverse and creative workforce is a key focus at Greenfields Community Housing. We believe in attracting, developing and retaining the best people and ensuring all our people are treated with dignity and respect. Find out about Job Opportunities at Greenfields.
As well as investing in our homes, we also invest in our communities. Find out about Funding Opportunities for local projects and organisations to apply for grants.
You can contact us and find our three office locations on our Customer Services page.
