Sheffield Housing Company (SHC) – Sheffield City Council’s joint venture development company with Keepmoat Homes and Great Places Housing – plans to build 2,300 properties on a total of 23 sites by the end of 2027.

To achieve this, SHC has appointed Howard Young as its development manager.

Howard Young, development manager, SHC, said: “Born and bred in Sheffield, I have an affinity and passion for the area, so when the opportunity arose to apply to work for SHC, I was very interested.

“Over the last few years, SHC and its partners have been responsible for delivering new, high quality, affordable housing that has enabled many to step onto the property ladder in their home city and encouraged others to move to the area.

‘Continue to find innovative and creative ways to address housing need in Sheffield’

“I am really looking forward to this role and the challenges ahead, most of which I feel will be influenced by the current economic climate, pressures on supply chain, employment and household incomes.
