Gedling Homes, a founder member of the Jigsaw Homes Group, is planning to change its name in September 2020.
The Jigsaw Group has enjoyed a highly successful first two years, making significant progress with the delivery of its merger aims and objectives, including the investment of £665k into community projects and development of 1,087 new homes.
Gedling Homes continues to play an important part as an independent company within the jigsaw Group, providing homes to over 3,000 residents in the Nottingham area. Working with local partners we identified that the company does not have a strong identity, sometimes being mistaken for a local borough council service. Added to that, it provides homes and services to many residents outside of the Gedling Borough.
Therefore, to provide a stronger and more accurate identity, the Board has decided to change the company’s name to Jigsaw Homes Midlands.
The rights of Gedling Homes tenants or leaseholders are not affected by the name change.
• the landlord will remain the same – although with a different name
• the tenancy is not affected
• there will be no impact on rent
• tenants will continue to receive the services from us in the same way they do now.
You will notice changes to the appearance of some of our communications materials, including the website, signage, letterhead as well as the maintenance team vehicles.
Over time, we believe that the change will help us develop a stronger profile in the local community, which in turn may help draw in more investment for community services and new homes development.
