Development at Flagship
Flagship is a leading East of England property developer. We are one of the most experienced, innovative and financially secure housing associations in the UK. We own and manage approximately 23,600 homes throughout the East and South East region, and as part of our commitment to invest in new homes in the region, we are actively exploring new land opportunities and partnerships within these areas. Our ambitious plans will see us building 2,500 new homes over the next 5 years.
Building communities with a future
Flagship aims to deliver new housing schemes offering a range of house types and tenancies, including private sales and rented to meet demand, while creating homes of a high standard in safe and sustainable communities in locations where people want to live.
Our new homes are provided through a number of routes including:
- Acquisition of land and property for development.
- Re-development of brownfield sites.
- Section 106 planning requirements for affordable homes.
- Planning exceptions sites.
- Change of Use sites, ex- commercial, industrial, other.
- Infill plots and land.
- Stock acquisitions.
Our current standard for measuring the sustainability of all new homes is Code for Sustainable Homes [pdf] 1MB Using this standard we are obliged to build to a minimum of Code 3 Level (out of a possible 6). To achieve these set levels, we aspire to achieve credits in nine different categories: energy and carbon dioxide emissons, water, materials, surface run-off, waste, pollution, health and well-being, management and ecology.
