QUALITY HOMES, BUILT ON KINDNESS AND COMMUNITY
Welcome to our new division, Allison Partnerships – dedicated to delivering high-quality affordable homes across our operating regions.
We work with housing providers and build-to-rent companies to play our part in ensuring that high-quality new homes are available to everyone, whilst increasing our penetration into this valuable, capital-efficient market.
According to the “People in housing need 2021” report, 8.5 million people in England have some form of unmet housing need. Most local authorities have increasingly long waiting lists of people in housing need and simply can’t satisfy the demand. As a Group, we want to ensure that we are playing our part to address this issue. Our new Partnerships division will accelerate our delivery of quality homes for customers in all parts of the market; private, rented and affordable.Read More >
With our experienced team, our financial strength and our resources, I am very excited about our ability to deliver in this market
MEET THE TEAM
Our first scheme to be delivered by Allison Partnerships will be at our Manning Road development in Bourne, Lincolnshire, in partnership with Longhurst Group. Our second is the delivery of our Whittlesey Green development in Whittlesey, Cambridgeshire, in partnership with Accent. Every home on these developments will be affordable and made available for sale or rent. With an impressive existing land bank, we plan to seed key relations and accelerate this part of our business by offering land and build-package deals to more housing providers across our other key regions in the near future.

We’ve got a great relationship, based on trust and a good understanding of what the other wants. Following a lot of customer research and feedback, I’m very confident that the houses on the Manning Road development will meet people’s needs.”

The development is attractively designed, with 10 different home styles and green open space. It is conveniently located a 20-minute walk from local schools, shops, and amenities; and near the train station which links directly to Peterborough and Ely and provides easy access to Cambridge, London, and Stanstead Airport.
This development is in partnership with Accent Group, who are part-funding the 130 homes with a grant provided by Homes England through their Strategic Partnership.

Sarah Ireland, Accent’s Executive Director of Strategy and Growth, said: “Accent has ambitious plans to develop many new affordable rented and low-cost home ownership homes each year. With nearly 1000 new homes currently in contract and being constructed on site, it is anticipated that over 400 of these will complete in this financial year. We are delighted to be working in partnership with Allison Group to provide these high-quality new homes, in an area where they are most needed, to help us achieve this goal. The homes at Whittlesey are designed to meet customer needs, in a range of styles and sizes, and centred around local amenities to create a thriving community.”

THE PARTNERSHIP CHARITABLE SCHEME
Kindness is at the core of our corporate values and the team at Allison Group have long held a collective desire to help communities. We are therefore proud to launch our Partnerships Charitable Scheme. By working with our partners to identify chosen local charities, we will build relationships with partners and other key local stakeholders, whilst supporting good causes that matter to local communities.
For every house contracted through a partnership scheme, Allison Partnerships will donate £100, payable in full when we start on site, to a local charity (operating within the area of the local planning authority). By working with chosen local charities, the company will provide opportunities to build relationships with partners and other key local stakeholders, whilst supporting good causes that matter to local communities.
We believe that good business is about giving back, not just making a profit, so we’re excited to see how our charitable contributions will help local communities achieve their goals.
