We are a Macclesfield-based housing association with homes across Cheshire and the High Peak. We exist to help improve lives by playing a part in addressing local housing need.

Helping improve lives

At the heart of our strategic plan are three key priorities – to be a great landlord, a resilient business and to create great places to live.

This final strand expresses our desire to work with key partners across our patch to shape a varied and quality development pipeline that puts people at its heart.

We want to work with others to ensure we meet local housing need and support thriving neighbourhoods. Our ambitions also focus on the development of core tenures to ensure more affordable homes that are efficient to run.

The Trust is committed to placemaking. In particular, we are building more new homes along Sunderland Street, to increase the options for town-centre living in Macclesfield.
