Cross Keys Homes (CKH) has once again demonstrated its commitment to building affordable homes and vibrant communities by appearing in the prestigious Inside Housing Top 50 Biggest Builders ranking for the fifth year running.
Featuring at number 45, CKH ranks alongside many organisations much larger than itself, illustrating the strength of CKH’s development power for its size.
Despite the challenges faced by the development and housing sector over the last 18 months, CKH is also proud to feature at number 37 in the top 50 for homes in the pipeline, highlighting its commitment to the future supply of affordable housing in the region.
CKH completed 325 homes in 2020/21, and is expected to complete 536 new builds this financial year. These were located in CKH’s home city of Peterborough and right across the east of England and home counties, where house prices are prohibitively expensive for many and affordable housing in desperately short supply.
Chief Executive Claire Higgins said: “Building homes for the future is a key objective for Cross Keys Homes and so to feature so strongly in this list every year is a great indication that we are getting it right. We are by no means the largest housing association and so to appear alongside the biggest in the sector shows we are really making our contribution to addressing the critical shortage of affordable housing in this country.
“The housing crisis is continuing to affect people greatly across the rented sector and those trying to buy their own home. We are determined to do all we can to help to address this by building as many affordable homes as our capacity permits. We are also working in a number of innovative Joint Ventures to enable us to build even more homes, and so balance the risk and reward to ensure we protect the interests of our current tenants and customers. These completion numbers do not include those homes that have been developed via our joint ventures”
