Welcome to Lyng
Lyng Community Association is proud to be at the heart of West Bromwich’s flagship residential development. We’re providing 200 high quality homes for affordable rent, 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.
As from 1 November 2014 Lyng Community Association will be managing its properties from our office at 3 Frank Fisher Way West Bromwich. You can visit the office between 10am and 3.30pm Monday to Friday or phone us on 0121 525 5969.
For emergency repairs the number is 0300 333 6540.
Please remember that we no longer use Walsall Housing Group to look after our properties – the Emergency Repairs service is now provided by Bourneville Property Care.
Happy New Year to all friends and residents of the Lyng!
Lyng Allotment Wins £500 Grant
We were delighted to receive a £500 grant from Tesco Community Awards towards our new Lyng community allotment. We have taken on an allotment for the community to use and for our Under 5′s Gardening Club to get the chance to grow their own food and give them an appreciation of a healthy diet. We are constructing raised beds so that wheelchair users can also participate in the allotment project. If it goes well we may look to extend the project – if you want to join us please contact Rachel in the Lyng Office on 0121 525 5969.

In May 2014 we were delighted to be named Best Regeneration Scheme in the Housing Excellence Awards and we have now followed this in November 2014 with further success in the Builder and Engineer Awards – the Lyng Estate winning the Residential Project of the Year 2014 Award.
This makes it a hat trick of awards as the Lyng estate won a MADE design award for being one of the top 20 developments in the West Midlands over the past 5 years.
Lyng Community Association – building a thriving, successful community and creating a great place to live.
