South Shropshire Housing Association (SSHA) and Meres and Mosses Housing Association Limited (MMHA) are proposing to merge by way of amalgamation.
SSHA and MMHA are part of the Connexus Group and we work together as one landlord. However, from a legal perspective they still exist as separate legal entities and separate landlords.
Administering separate entities costs us money and time, which could be better invested in the improvement of the services we provide to you.
Our Board is proposing that SSHA and MMHA formally merge into one legal entity and one landlord. As part of this we have a duty to consult with you and our Board will be taking your views into account before making a final decision.
All South Shropshire Housing Association and Meres and Mosses Housing Association tenants will be receiving a consultation letter within the next few weeks to explain in further detail the proposed changes, and how you can share your views.
