About Chorley CH

Choose from the index:

Chorley Community Housing Ltd was formed in 2007 to receive a Large Scale Voluntary Transfer of Chorley Borough Council’s housing stock. It is a member of the Jigsaw Homes Group Ltd.

Our history

The Association was formed in March 2007 following a 2006 vote in favour of stock transfer by tenants of Chorley Borough Council.  The Association immediately joined the Adactus Group Structure as a subsidiary of Adactus Housing Group Ltd.

In 2009, the Association took on the management of Lune Valley Housing Association’s 77 properties.

In 2009, the Association entered into a management agreement with Adactus Housing Association.  The agreement transfered the management of 1,800 AHA properties, previously managed by AHA’s West Area office, to CCH (this number has since grown to 2,200).

In 2018 the Adactus Group merged with the New Charter Group and created the Jigsaw Homes Group Ltd.


Jigsaw Group uses overlapped Boards to simplify its governance arrangements and to make the best use of the shared skill-set of our board members and directors.  Board meetings for organisations within the Group are held contemporaneously using overlapped meetings.  We subscribe to the 2015 edition of the National Housing Federation’s Code of Governance.

Chorley Community Housing (CCH) is governed by our Housing North Board.
