Witton Lodge Community Association
Published: 3rd July 2023
Witton Lodge Community Association achieves landmark rental portfolio of over 200 properties. The Perry Common based community landlord has been tireless in its attempts to provide affordable and social housing which meets the needs of local people.
In 2017 the Association set up a subsidiary, Witton Lodge Community Homes (WLCH) to develop its housing and community asset development aspirations. Targeting empty properties to bring them back into use, WLCH works with Birmingham City Council and other stakeholders to explore opportunities for new build development which can also provide affordable housing solutions.
This new milestone underlines the commitment and progress Witton Lodge has made to realising its long-term goals.
Chief Officer, Afzal Hussain, said: “Our asset base of social, affordable and market rent homes has enabled the Association to invest in communities and transform neighbourhoods in Erdington and across North Birmingham. This is a significant achievement for us and the community led housing movement, as what really sets us apart from others is that our developments are shaped by local people and go with the grain of communities.”View
