Crown Simmons Housing forms partnership with Southern Housing Group


We’re delighted to announce that we’re forming a partnership with Southern Housing Group, who we will be joining as a subsidiary from 1 April 2020.

The Group are looking to build over 1000 homes in Surrey and Sussex over the coming years, so joining them in this partnership makes perfect sense.

We will keep our name and identity but the Group will be providing a number of services for our residents including our repairs service, resident involvement and community investment opportunities.

Paul Yates, our Chief Executive is delighted to be part of the latest step in the Crown Simmons history:

“We began our search for the right partner last year and after some careful consideration it became clear that Southern Housing Group were the best suited for us, for our residents and for our colleagues. This is a great next step for Crown Simmons Housing. We will have all the advantages of being part of a larger organisation with access to systems and teams that will bring efficiencies and investment in homes and services to our residents in Surrey.”

Alan Townshend, Southern Housing Group’s Chief Executive said:

“We are delighted to welcome Crown Simmons to the Group. Our growth and corporate visions are closely aligned. We have got to know our new colleagues over the last few months and I can say with confidence that culturally and strategically we are a great fit. Crown Simmons is a well-respected housing association. We are looking forward to working together to provide a growing number of high quality homes for people in need and investing together in the Surrey communities we serve.”
