Peak Valley Housing Association – Estate Stock Transfer

Peak Valley Housing Association was established within the Contour Housing Group to act as the Registered Social Landlord (RSL) to manage the transfer of 1,600 properties. The Estate was originally built in the early 1960s to house residents from areas in Manchester that were undergoing large scale clearance programmes.Over the years the estate has suffered the all too familiar fate of large council estates – poverty, unemployment and a lack of opportunity for its residents resulting in a social stigma that was undeserved.

Working closely with Arcus, Contour Housing Group put together an initial business plan and investment programme that would not only meet the investment needed to upgrade the properties but would also ensure the development of a sustainable and vibrant community.

“We continue to partner with Arcus in the delivery of our Stock Transfers due to their ability to provide a one stop flexible service from the initial bid stage through completion of works on site. They provide a high level of consultation, checking and understanding the needs of residents and working with them in the management, structure and delivery of these schemes.”
