Genesis and Notting Hill Housing shareholders pass merger vote

Last updated - 1 February 2018

Shareholders of Genesis Housing Association have today passed the confirmatory vote with a clear majority in favour of a merger with Notting Hill Housing. Notting Hill’s shareholders also voted in favour.

The vote, passed on Thursday evening (1 February), follows the Special General Meetings held by both housing associations on 16 January, where both sets of shareholders overwhelmingly voted in favour of the merger proceeding.

Commenting on the vote, a Genesis spokesperson said: “We are obviously delighted that our own shareholders at Genesis and those at Notting Hill Housing have voted so strongly in favour of the merger proceeding.

“As Notting Hill Genesis, we will have greater capacity and influence to play our part in addressing the housing crisis in London and South East.  We will be able to build 400 more homes than we would separately, as well as delivering better quality, enhanced services to our customers.

“We would like to thank everyone who has been involved in getting us to this point.  There is still much to do, but we are excited about the future opportunities before us to do more for the people who need us most.”
