Welcome to Lyng
Lyng Community Association is proud to be at the heart of West Bromwich’s flagship residential development. We provide 200 high quality homes for affordable rent, provide a management service for a further 154 homes and manage and maintain shared communal areas across the mixed tenure estate under a Management Agreement with Lyng Management Company as well as building a community spirit to make the Lyng a vibrant place to live.
We’re a not-for-profit organisation set up after a group of pioneering local people united to redevelop the old Lyng estate by creating homes fit for modern living, as well as fantastic open spaces.
Now is an exciting time in the history of the Lyng as we shape our thriving community, keeping our focus on sustainable regeneration and local empowerment. The 2017 Tenant Satisfaction Survey provided us with a fantastic 97% overall satisfaction rate – putting us amongst the best performing housing associations across the UK.
