The three-way Partnership, which works together to deliver an affordable housing programme in north and west London, is one of six new strategic partners announced by the Mayor this week.
GLA strategic partners are allocated grant funding on condition that they commit to delivering at least 60% of affordable housing in all their developments. Under the scheme the Connected Partnership will receive £27m of grant funding to build 525 new affordable homes over the next four years and we will be developing 1,408 homes under the 2018-22 programme.
Matt Campion, CEO of Shepherds Bush Housing Group, said: “We’ve recently completed 137 new affordable homes. The difference these make to the people living in them makes our strategic partnership with the Mayor even more important as we can build more. Our partnership ensures that community-focused housing associations, who really know and understand their areas, are part of the rich mix of organisations working with the Mayor to solve London’s housing crisis.”
The Connected Partnership is one of 15 strategic partners in London receiving grant funding from the GLA to deliver affordable homes.
