TWO housing associations may join forces to create a super landlord for Stafford residents.
The boards of Housing Plus and Stafford and Rural Homes are in talks about working together in a new body to deliver “the best of both.”
The planned new group would manage more than 12,000 homes and employ more than 500 people.
Both organisations would retain their respective roles as local landlords but say they would also be able to build more homes, strengthen services, be more efficient and deal with future challenges better than they could alone.
Consultation has begun with residents, staff, partners and other stakeholders and the companies say no decision will be made until that is completed.
