Proposed merger with Colne Housing: have your say!

Proposed merger with Colne Housing: have your say!
10th February 2020 James Calnan

Update 23 March, 2020: This consultation period has now closed. Thank you for your feedback. We will be in touch about what happens next soon.

Greenfields Community Housing is exploring merging with another local housing association Colne Housing, based in Colchester.

We believe our combined strength would allow us to sustain investment in existing homes, build new ones, improve services and empower residents to have more of a say in what we do.

A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes since we announced our proposed partnership last summer.

Now our Boards want to know what residents think before they make a final decision on whether to merge or not.

A resident consultation runs from 10 February to 22 March. To have your say, please read the following guide before filling in the short form below.

We have also held a series of consultation events:

February 27, 1-3pm: United Reformed Church, Newland Street, Witham CM8 1AH

March 3, 2-3pm: Greenfields House, Charter Way, Braintree CM77 8FG

March 4, 11am-1pm: St Andrews Church Hall, Parsonage Street, Halstead, CO9 2LD


How would you describe us? 
We’re proposing to create a merged organisation with a new identity. Thank you to the 200 Greenfields and Colne residents who have taken part in this consultation, either through taking part in an online survey or through attending one of two resident workshops during February.

We are now working through your feedback. Watch this space for more information!
