JV North is a not for profit company limited by guarantee with the six founding North West-based housing associations as shareholders.
These are New Charter Housing Trust, One Manchester, Torus, Trafford Housing Trust, Weaver Vale Housing Trust and Wythenshawe Community Housing Group.
In 2011, Liverpool Mutual Homes became a member and in 2014, Community Gateway Association in Preston joined the consortium as JV North’s geographical reach expanded further across the North West.
The membership branched outside the North West for the first time when Nottingham-based Gedling Homes joined in 2014.
JV North has a strong track record delivering homes under the HCA Affordable Homes Programme.
In 2011/15, the consortium successfully bid for £22.3 million from the HCA’s 2011/15 Affordable Homes Programme and members invested £84 million to deliver 1,075 high quality, sustainable homes to meet residents’ needs.
A further 539 homes were built under the Affordable Homes Guarantee Programme.
In July 2014, we received the second largest allocation of funding outside of London when we were allocated £34.8m for the 2015/18 Affordable Homes Programme that will see members build nearly 2,000 houses residents will be proud to call home.
At the start of 2017, JV North announced it will invest more than a third of a billion pounds to build nearly 3,000 homes.
The consortium received a grant of £87.3 million from the HCA’s 2016/21 Shared Ownership Affordable Homes Programme with members investing £248.2 million of their own funds taking the overall total to £335.5 million.
