Private developers and landowners

As a developer or landowner you can depend on us to help you create housing that people are proud to call home.

We are the leading rural housing development organisation for the Midlands. Our expertise and relationships with parish councils, local authorities, developers, contractors, architects, and housing providers have helped create thriving rural communities since 1997.

To be successful, rural housing requires the input of local knowledge so Midlands Rural Housing works with developers and landowners by offering consultancy, access to partnerships, and housing services.

Our consultancy service is a portfolio of practical tasks starting with housing needs surveys to establish requirements and provide evidence for a development to be considered. We produce tailored good practice guides for rural schemes and step-by-step process documents to share with your stakeholders. If something is still missing, we conduct research, training, and stakeholder awareness raising for anyone involved in development.

Talk to us about putting in place vital lines of communication with stakeholders through our partnerships programme. We will facilitate liaison with local authorities, communities, and others to help build your local knowledge of housing needs.

Beyond construction, Midlands Rural Housing takes care of the upkeep of your property with our housing management and maintenance services to ensure housing stays in good condition for years to come.

What our customers say:

We chose to work with MRH as they're specialists in rural housing, with lots of experience conducting housing needs surveys nationally and have been Harborough District Council’s preferred partner for many years.

Philippa at MRH guided us through the process, kept to deadlines and answered my many questions.

She delivered a thorough report, explaining future housing needs in the area, and the type of homes that would be required to meet that need.
