Saxon Weald manages more than 5900 homes across Sussex and Hampshire. This includes affordable rented and shared ownership homes for individuals and families and a wide range of retirement housing for the over 60s, including Extra Care schemes for older people with care needs. Established in 2000, our aim is to improve the lives of our residents and the neighbourhoods in which they live by providing excellent homes and services.
We are a growing organisation, committed to promoting equality and diversity and creating opportunities for our residents, and our employees, who number around 160. We hold an Investor in People Gold certificate. The Saxon Weald Board is made up of independent professionals, tenants, council nominees, the Chief Executive and the Finance and Assets Director. It makes decisions on strategy, policy and budgets, and monitors and reviews our performance.
As a not-for-profit company and registered charity, we invest all the money we make back into our homes, upgrading old ones and building new. Our in-house repairs service HomeFix completes around 14,000 jobs a year.
Saxon Weald’s Development team works directly with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) to build much needed homes in the south east. We are also a member of the Sovereign Development Consortium.
Saxon Weald is committed to high-quality, sustainable housing, built with the least possible impact on the environment. Our environmentally-friendly features include sedum roofs and a biomass boiler. We built the first houses in the country to achieve Level 5 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, and the first development of Passivhaus homes in the South East, at Standings Court in the centre of Horsham (pictured). This development was shortlisted for two of Inside Housing's Sustainable Housing Awards 2012 and was a finalist in the Construction News Awards. Affordable housing is in particularly short supply in rural areas, which is why we are committed to building more homes in the countryside. Our rural housing schemes are small-scale and sympathetic to the environment, built in consultation with the local community on existing sites wherever possible.
Why we joined the Housing Forum
The Housing Forum allows us to share expertise and learn from our peers, while keeping us up to date with current housing issues.
