Message from the CEO
Since joining Rentplus in September 2014 the Board has approved an ambitious plan to deliver 5,000 affordable home completions within five years. We have received significant interest and encouraging support from investors, local authorities, a local enterprise partnership, house builders and high profile political support.
Tamar Housing Society continues to support us in our promotion and growth both in Plymouth and across the South West. I am pleased to report that Rentplus is now actively looking for new development opportunities across much of the South and into East Anglia. We will shortly be exploring opportunities across the Midlands.
The Homes and Communities Agency has approved our first scheme with a Short Form Agreement to Tamar Housing Society for Rentplus affordable rented homes at Mannamead in Plymouth. Our pipeline is already significant and I am confident we will achieve our planned growth targets.
The success of our delivery will continue to be down to our strong board governance and excellent staff – both team members and retained agents - and our key partners.
I am very pleased to launch the new Rentplus website as part of our strategy to bring Rentplus to a wider audience, achieve a step change in delivery of affordable housing across the country and start to really address the housing crisis.
Richard Connolly, Rentplus CEO
