The One Manchester Group was formed on 1 April 2015 when Eastlands Homes Partnership Limited and City South Manchester Housing Trust became subsidiaries of One Manchester Limited. One Manchester Limited, the Group parent, is a Charitable Community Benefit Society and an asset owning Registered Provider of Social Housing. The Group operates within the City of Manchester. Following Group simplification, Eastlands Homes Partnership and City South Manchester Housing Trust were transferred by engagement into One Manchester. This means all the assets and liabilities of Eastlands Homes Partnership, City South Manchester Housing Trust and One Manchester are now in one company; One Manchester Limited.
The One Manchester Group adopted an efficient treasury structure upon its formation with a treasury vehicle, One Manchester Treasury Limited that provides the private finance facilities for the Group. This structure allows for a more efficient use of the Group’s security and private finance facilities enabling more efficient borrowing costs.
One Manchester Developments Limited is the vehicle through which the Group develops new housing, performing the role of principal development contractor for the Group, ensuring efficient development of new homes in accordance with our growth and diversification strategic priority.
One Manchester Property Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of One Manchester Limited with general commercial objects. It was established in order to enable potential non-charitable, non-core activity to be undertaken, which is likely to include property development for sale, joint venture arrangements and providing property management services to third parties.
