The Guinness Partnership

The Guinness Partnership is a national housing association with 65,000 homes and a strategic partner of Homes England. With 140,000 customers we’re proud to be one of the largest affordable housing providers in the country.

We are particularly interested in development opportunities in Greater Manchester; Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cheshire.

We are actively looking for opportunities to:

  • Acquire land – particularly with planning consent, but also sites of a strategic nature which will deliver homes in the longer term;
  • Enter into Joint Ventures – both with public and private sector partners;
  • Purchase homes under Section 106 agreements;
  • Acquire completed high quality new homes.


Our programme is a mix of land led, Section 106 schemes, package deals, turnkey projects and off the shelf purchases.

We are growing our land development pipeline and have funding immediately available. Our strong financial position and track record means we confidently expect to invest over £2bn in the next 5 years.

Our Executive Team, Development Team and Sales and Marketing Team have extensive experience including working in partnership with the public and private sectors, Joint Ventures, redeveloping brownfield sites and large scale land acquisitions.

An example of a current development is Points Cross in Leeds, offering 928 new homes, with a minimum 35% affordable housing. It includes commercial and retail space and is part of Leeds City Council’s South Side Regeneration.
