Essex-based housing association CHP has retained the highest available governance and viability ratings from the Regulator of Social Housing (RSH) following an annual assesment.
CHP, which manages over 10,000 homes for over 25,000 customers, says its retention of the G1 rating for governance and V1 rating for viability confirm the Regulator’s confidence in the way the organisation operates.
CHP says it is committed to meeting the strong demand for homes, by building more new properties for affordable rent and shared ownership.
Last year, the association 375 new homes and currently has another 650 homes under construction.
CHP has also recently launched a new Customer Engagement Strategy, which aims to ensure that as many customers as possible get the opportunity to have their say on the services it provides.
Mary Gibbons, chief executive of CHP, said: “We are delighted to maintain the highest possible gradings from the Regulator.
“These ratings are an endorsement of all the hard work we do to ensure we are well governed and financially secure.
“This has been a challenging year, but we remain in great shape to deliver on our goals of providing more high-quality affordable homes and great services for our customers.”
Based in Chelmsford, Essex, CHP is a locally managed and governed housing association, registered as a Community Benefit Society.
