Peabody in the news

We’re delighted to announce that Town and Country Housing has joined the Peabody Group.

Town and Country Housing, a Kent-based housing association, is now part of the Peabody Group. It will keep its name and operate as a subsidiary.

The move, which follows a period of extensive consultations with residents and stakeholders, means that Town and Country will be able to build 800 new homes every year - 500 more than they would have built alone.

Town and Country's CEO Bob Heapy joins Peabody’s Executive Team and Chair, Francis Salway, joins the Peabody Board. In a joint statement, Lord Kerslake, Chair of Peabody, and Francis Salway said:

"This combines the strength of two organisations to deliver more much-needed affordable homes in the South East. Becoming part of the Peabody family, while remaining as a separate subsidiary, will help strengthen Town and Country’s offer in the South East, ensuring Peabody remains focused on its heartland in London."
