JV North - Affordable Housing


Drees & Sommer has been a member of the JV North Framework since 2013, previously being a trusted consultant to its members, and having been reappointed ranked #1 in 2021. We have delivered over 2,000 units for them over this period providing services that has stretched the full breadth of our consultancy services. Having built such a strong reputation across the consortia is down to our consultants taking the time to ensure that risks are properly mitigated, engaging the right people early into our appointments.

Through the framework we have created a number of partnerships including Bury Council, Community Gateway Association, Johnnie Johnson Housing, One Manchester, Plus Dane Housing, Sovini, Torus, Trafford Housing Trust, Weaver Vale Housing Trust and Wythenshawe Community Housing Group .

Schemes have included general needs bungalows, houses and apartments, specialist supported housing and extra care schemes. The schemes have varied from one off bespoke bungalows for specific tenant needs, garage infill sites to larger 300 plus mixed tenure housing and apartments schemes including sales units. The schemes have included demolitions, site remediation, new build and refurbishment.


We are deeply rooted in the local communities and neighbourhoods served by JV North. We work closely with Homes England, local authorities, local enterprise partnerships, investors and other partners to utilise land for the provision of sustainable, affordable housing. We aspire for all our schemes to provide employment and community benefits through housing programmes and the Building Back Fairer principle.
