We're in the Top 50 Biggest Builders!

We have once again demonstrated our commitment to building affordable homes and vibrant communities by appearing in the prestigious Inside Housing Top 50 Biggest Builders ranking for the fifth year running.

Featuring at number 45, we rank alongside many organisations much larger than ourselves, illustrating the strength of our development power for our size.

Despite the challenges faced by the development and housing sector over the last 18 months, we are also proud to feature at number 37 in the top 50 for homes in the pipeline, highlighting our commitment to the future supply of affordable housing in the region.

We completed 325 homes in 2020/21, and are expected to complete 536 new builds this financial year. These were located in our home city of Peterborough and right across the east of England and home counties, where house prices are prohibitively expensive for many and affordable housing in desperately short supply.

Chief Executive Claire Higgins said: “Building homes for the future is a key objective for Cross Keys Homes and so to feature so strongly in this list every year is a great indication that we are getting it right. We are by no means the largest housing association and so to appear alongside the biggest in the sector shows we are really making our contribution to addressing the critical shortage of affordable housing in this country.

“The housing crisis is continuing to affect people greatly across the rented sector and those trying to buy their own home. We are determined to do all we can to help to address this by building as many affordable homes as our capacity permits. We are also working in a number of innovative Joint Ventures to enable us to build even more homes, and so balance the risk and reward to ensure we protect the interests of our current tenants and customers. These completion numbers do not include those homes that have been developed via our joint ventures”
