Welcome to Eastlight Community Homes!

Welcome to Eastlight Community Homes!
30th June 2020 James Calnan

On 1 July 2020, Greenfields Community Homes and Colne Housing merged to form Eastlight Community Homes.

Forming one organisation will enable us to be stronger together. It will enable us to invest an extra £8 million on new kitchens, bathrooms, electric heating, doors and roofs in residents’ homes over the next five years.

We’ll also be able to build new homes in our neighbourhoods, spend more on our communities and create a Resident Academy to ensure residents shape the future of Eastlight Community Homes. Please visit Eastlight Community Homes’ website here to find out more.

If you are a Greenfields resident, your usual contact methods and services have not changed. Please read your FAQs below to find out more.
