The Hyde Group (development partner)

Hyde Housing began in 1967 when the country’s major cities were still struggling to overcome the impact of World War II, and when demand for decent affordable housing outstripped the capacity of the building industry, including local authorities, to supply. Since then, our vision has been to make a lasting difference to people’s lives.

Hyde is an agent for social change; it improves the quality of people’s lives by helping to create a sustainable, inclusive and thriving community – in short places people are proud to call ‘their home'.
