LHP and Ongo Decide Not to Proceed with Merger
Lincolnshire Housing Partnership (LHP) and Ongo Homes (Ongo) have decided not to proceed with their potential merger, following a period of due diligence.
In September this year, it was announced that LHP and Ongo were in discussions about a potential merger.
However, in a joint statement released today, the organisations’ Chief Executives, Murray Macdonald (LHP) and Steve Hepworth (Ongo) said: “Following detailed discussions, LHP and Ongo have agreed that the two organisations can best serve their residents by remaining as separate entities and are therefore no longer intending to pursue merger discussions.”
This decision was not taken lightly. We have invested considerable time in exploring the potential of this merger and its impact. This ensures the continuation of existing services for our customers and tenants.
Customer rights, repairs, rent, and charges will remain unaffected by this outcome. Our commitment to delivering high-quality services remains unwavering.
Preserving Existing Services:
While the merger will not move forward as initially planned, our dedication to serving our communities with excellence remains unchanged. We value the strong relationships we have developed with our customers and look forward to continuing our partnership.
