The Homes and Communities Agency is the single, national housing and regeneration delivery agency for England.

Andrew Rothwell, Partner at Ashfords, commented:
“Ashfords is delighted to be included on the HCA legal panel. The selection process was demanding but has produced a very strong national team to support the in-house HCA legal department. We are very pleased to be part of that team.
“We believe that the impact of the HCA will progressively increase as it continues to establish its central role in coordinating the work of various stakeholders involved in the creation of homes and communities where people want to live.”
