About CHP

CHP are a locally managed and governed charitable housing association based in Chelmsford, Essex. They provide high quality affordable homes to rent and buy.

They were established in 2002 with two main aims: to provide excellent services and to increase the supply of affordable homes to those in need.

The housing association works closely with residents, local authorities, private sector companies, other charitable agencies and public sector bodies to constantly improve the services they provide.

Their services include tackling anti-social behaviour, improving residents’ quality of life, providing support for older people and developing affordable properties.

The CHP created four wholly-owned subsidiary companies: CHP Foundations, Myriad Capital PLC, Myriad Homes and Myriad Housing.

Their Chief Executive Officer Stuart Stackhouse is responsible for implementing the strategies and policies set by the board, as well as the day-to-day operations.
