Supporting housing, place and regeneration
In line with the new Homes England’s Strategic Plan 2023-28, the founding members – Essex Developers Group (EDG) and South Essex Housing Group (SEHG) have been working hard to create high quality homes and thriving places. In 2023, Essex Housing Officers Group (EHOG) joined as a third partner to boost the ongoing collaboration between housing providers and local authorities across Essex, working with The Housing Groups as a collective.
EDG comprises developers, contractors, consultants, local housing companies, housing, associations, Essex County Council and borough, city, district and unitary authorities as members. The group aims to eliminate barriers to house building and maximise commercial opportunities by getting the public and private sectors working together in a sustainable way that meets local needs.
SEHG, comprising local authorities, housing associations and Essex County Council, aims to contribute and influence the national, regional housing agenda through supporting developing and implementing local housing strategies forming part of a Strategic Planning Framework for South Essex (including Brentwood) being led by Association of South Essex Local Authorities (ASELA).
EHOG, is an Essex wide housing group, consisting of key partners from District Housing Authorities, Essex County Council and Registered Housing providers. EHOG works in partnership across Greater Essex to promote and share good practice in strategic housing, housing management and operations, stimulate housing growth, align strategic housing aspirations and reduce homelessness and the use of temporary accommodation.
