Richmond Housing Partnership (together with Co-Op Homes) is a local housing company and a member of the National Housing Federation as well as being a registered charity. This social landlord group was established in 2000 following a stock transfer from Richmond Council.
You may have noticed the white RHP vans out and about visiting & fixing issues in properties in the borough – the association owns and manages over 8000 homes in Richmond and Hounslow and employs 225 people.
RHP’s purpose is “to provide good quality, affordable homes for people in need and to deliver excellent landlord services and to support the development of successful communities.”
Due to its location next to Waldegrave Library and opposite Meadow Cottages, the modern design raised a few eyebrows but is certainly an improvement on the dilapidated Paint Research Association buildings that used to occupy this site.
This new building has enabled the RHP to introduce modern cost-saving such as roof-mounted solar panels to reduce energy bills (making it one of the most highly environmentally rated buildings in London). The central office replaces previous ones in Twickenham and Brentford and offers far better accessibility for customers and is easy to reach by foot, bus, car or train.
