Sustainable Energy Association welcomes housing providers to its membership

Nottingham Community Housing Association has joined the SEA in its new ‘Housing provider’ membership category

Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) is one of the largest locally-based housing groups in the East Midlands, managing around 9,000 homes, in properties worth over £500 million and housing more than 15,000 tenants in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland.

NCHA have been developing new homes since 1973, and are working in partnership with 31 local authorities to build new affordable homes that meet local needs. This includes homes for sale, rent shared ownership, and ‘try before you buy’ schemes.

Andrea Griffiths-James from NCHA said:

  “We are delighted to be members of the Sustainable Energy Association. NCHA is committed to providing healthy, sustainable homes and we take a whole house technology agnostic approach which is clearly aligned with the SEA.  Our membership of SEA will allow us to benefit from the expertise of both its secretariat and it members and provide the opportunity to shape policy development in areas important to our business and our tenants.”

Lesley Rudd, SEA Acting Chief Executive commented,

“We are pleased to welcome Nottingham Community Housing Association into our membership. Our Housing Provider membership category was established following interest from a number of providers who see value in joining an organisation focused on improving the quality and energy efficiency of our buildings and the heating systems within them. The SEA has a reputation for developing innovative and solution focused policy proposals for our buildings. Housing providers can contribute valuable input to ensure those proposals work for the people living in these homes and offer an opportunity to trial new approaches and technology. We look forward to working with NCHA and policy makers to enhance existing policies and develop new ones which ensure our homes and buildings are healthy and sustainable.”
