Bromford completes its merger with Merlin to form a 40,000-home organisation

Midlands based Bromford has completed its merger with South West-based Merlin, to form a 40,000-home organisation.

The association will still be known as Bromford and it plans to invest £1.5bn in 14,000 new homes over the next 10 years in both the South West and the Midlands. It is also in talks with Gloucestershire-based Severn Vale Housing over a further merger, which it aims to complete in early 2019, bringing the total number of homes owned and managed by the landlord to almost 44,000
