Shropshire Towns and Rural Housing
On 1 April 2013, Shropshire Towns and Rural Housing Ltd took responsibility for the management of all 4200 Shropshire Council owned homes in the Oswestry & Bridgnorth areas. We now provide all housing management services to council tenants, including all work to repair, maintain and improve. This also includes garage tenancies and leaseholders.
Shropshire Towns and Rural Housing (STAR Housing) is an Arm’s Length Management Organisation (ALMO), which means that Shropshire Council retains the ownership of the housing stock, controls the allocations policy and retains the homelessness duty but STAR Housing manage and improve the housing service provided to tenants.
ST and R Housing is managed by a board of directors made up of tenants, independents, council representatives and a staff member.
