Welcome to Shropshire Towns and Rural Housing

Shropshire Towns and Rural Housing

On 1 April 2013, Shropshire Towns and Rural Housing Ltd (STAR Housing) 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.

We are 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 we manage and improve the housing service provided to tenants.

We are managed by a board of directors made up of tenants, independents, council representatives and a staff member.

Text Messaging for our repairs service

Our repairs team will send you a text message when you report a repair to us, to confirm your appointment and then one to remind you the day before.

Save water and save money

Saving water can be an easy process. The smallest changes can make a huge difference overtime. Remember, around 25% of your energy bill comes from heating water - so being efficient can help cut down on bills too!
