Amalgamation consultation update

The consultation with residents to combine the housing associations Affinity Sutton Homes and Circle 33 (known as Circle Housing), to form a single organisation called Clarion Housing Association closed on 19th September 2017. All residents of Affinity Sutton Homes and Circle Housing (excluding Old Ford residents who will be consulted separately) were invited to give their views.

Thank you to everyone who provided their feedback.  We received 489 responses across all communication channels and across both housing associations. Of 489 responses more residents were in favour of amalgamation than against.

With regards to key priorities, residents indicated that their priorities are:

  • Investment in improving and maintaining your homes,
  • security
  • improving communications with residents.

Next steps

Both Common and Group Board have approved the results of the consultation. We will be holding shareholder meetings in October/November
