Eastlight Community Homes
Eastlight Community Homes took over Braintree District Council's homes in November 2007, following a tenant and leaseholder ballot for transfer in December 2006. We have around 8,100 tenanted homes and 450 leasehold properties all over the Braintree District.
Eastlight Community Homes was the third Community Gateway Association set up in the country. This means that our residents have a greater say than is usual in decisions that affect their homes and communities. Working with partners and our residents, we make changes to improve our communities, ranging from increased lighting and parking to building new, affordable homes and play areas.
Our vision is ‘To work together to provide the best homes and services to achieve the best for people in our communities
