Australian not for profit housing provider Community Housing Limited (CHL) has announced the integration of Horizon Housing, Queensland’s largest housing provider into the CHL Group of Companies.  

The integration will boost CHL’s current portfolio to over 11,000 properties, making it the largest community housing provider in the country.

The combined group will manage community and affordable housing properties across the six states with nearly 300 staff. 

The new arrangement will consolidate expertise and strengthen the reach and services offered by both community housing providers.

Horizon Housing, Queensland’s largest housing provider with operations in fifteen local government areas across Queensland and parts of New South Wales, provides both community housing programs and affordable housing projects and has over 2,400 properties in its portfolio.

“This new arrangement further strengthens the position of both organisations, providing each with mutually beneficial outcomes aligned to our shared vision of providing the communities we serve with affordable housing solutions that are available and accessible by those in need,” Community Housing Limited Group’s, Managing Director, Steve Bevington, said. 

Bevington said for 25 years, CHL haD been considered a sector leader, supporting and growing the industry both locally and internationally, providing end to end affordable housing developments and long term housing and tenancy management operations in Australia. 

“Horizon’s integration within the CHL Group is another step in that direction," he said.

THE CEO of Horizon Housing, Jason Cubit, said the integration of the two entities creates a powerful alliance to fight the problem recently highlighted by the latest Anglicare Rental Affordability Snapshot, which categorised three out of 67,365 rental properties listed in Australia as “affordable” for a single person on Newstart Allowance.
