Manchester has this morning a new housing provider.

One Manchester, a partnership between Eastlands Homes and City South Manchester Housing Trust, which which will provide more than 12,000 properties across Manchester.

The companies said the merger would also allow them to offer better value for money, generate millions of pounds, increase the financial strength of the businesses, have a stronger voice in the region and housing sector and continue to retain and attract the best staff.

Both housing associations were set up following a stock transfer of homes from Manchester City Council, Eastlands Homes in 2003 and City South in 2008, and both have carried out multi-million pound improvement programmes to their homes and communities.

The new group structure sees tCity South and Eastlands Homes would keep their own identities as subsidiaries, but would come under the umbrella of the new parent organisation.

Eastlands Homes works across Beswick, Clayton, Openshaw, Ardwick, Gorton, Levenshulme, Longsight and Rusholme areas of east and south Manchester; while City South has homes in Hulme, Fallowfield, Moss Side and Whalley Range.
