Decision Confirmed
Optimisation of Essex Housing
Is a Key Decision:
Stakeholder Involvement

Prior to inception, Essex Housing consulted extensively with partner organisations (housing authorities, Police, Fire, health, Probation, Government Property Unit, Local Government Association, National Housing Association, Registered Providers etc) in the development of the model. As this decision relates to optimisation and does not fundamentally change the aims and purpose of the model, no further consultation is necessary.

Additional Information


Essex Housing is Essex’s in-house public sector developer, based within Essex County Council, but working on behalf of the public sector within Essex. It was established to utilise vacant or underutilised assets and bring them forward for development in order to address general, specialist and affordable housing need; regenerate localities, generate capital receipts and deliver revenue benefits.

Essex Housing has successfully delivered a number of housing schemes to date with a growing pipeline. As the programme has grown, there is now an opportunity to deliver greater benefits in a more efficient way through the optimisation of its operating arrangements and the establishment of a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) structure. A report will therefore be brought to seek approval to establish an LLP and establish new governance, procurement and operational processes.
