Our Homes

We currently own or manage around 3,000 homes throughout north Essex and south Suffolk.

We build homes for affordable rent and shared ownership.

We have eight sheltered housing schemes and nearly 150 bed spaces for vulnerable clients, most are managed on Colne’s behalf by specialist agencies.

Colne provides direct management support to customers with learning difficulties and young families.

We are a Corporate Trustee to a number of almshouses, provide leasehold management services to the private sector and housing, supported housing maintenance, and provide payroll and financial services to other organisations.

We also operate private sector leasing and empty homes schemes which offer accommodation to homeless people who would otherwise be in bed and breakfasts and bring empty properties back into use.
