The Hillingdon based Harlington Rectory Housing Association has merged with Harrow Churches Housing Association (HCHA). For the fifty-four tenants and their families living in Woodforde Court and St Paul’s Close, the merger has meant that they have a new landlord with sound experience of building and managing social housing.
On announcement of the merger in February 2015, John Baldwin, who stood down as the last Chair of Harlington Rectory explained, ‘Harrow Churches Housing Association can provide better management and governance. It can do this by putting it on a stronger financial footing, offering a wider range of services and it has various professionals in its employment and on its Board.’
Christopher Holley, Chief Executive of HCHA said, ‘Harrow Churches Housing Association and Harlington share a common past and I hope that the shared future will bring benefits to all the tenants of the new association. This merger builds upon our small but high quality provision. We look forward to building upon our partnership with Hillingdon Council and other partners in the Borough as we continue to increase affordable housing for residents in the Hillingdon.’
