Following a robust procurement process, Midlands Rural Housing have successfully secured a contract to deliver rural housing enabling services across Leicestershire, for the next 12 months.

The Project Delivery and New Business team will work on behalf of the Leicestershire Rural Housing Group (LRHG) with a focus on identifying land that could be brought forward as rural exception sites in villages across the county.

Rural communities will also be engaged to determine the number of local people in housing need through housing needs assessments, and evidence will be used to inform and influence the LRHG as to where affordable housing is needed the most.

MRH’s Project Delivery Manager, Philippa Mckenna said:

"Identifying and then working to meet the housing needs of people living in rural communities, is very much at the heart of our business.  We’re delighted to have secured this contract and look forward to working with our Leicestershire partners in continuing to enable the delivery of much needed affordable housing across rural Leicestershire."
