About Switch with Colne

Home ownership – together we can make it a reality.

Whether you are downsizing, expanding your family or wanting to get your foot on the first rung of the home ownership ladder – we are here to help. Switch with Colne is the name of the homes we, Colne Housing, offer for sale – on a part buy, part rent basis.- known as shared ownership.

We are a trusted local housing association which enables independent living and encourages communities to thrive. There is a huge need for quality, affordable homes in desirable locations; which is exactly what Switch with Colne aims to deliver.

We work hard with our development partner Iceni Homes, some of the UK’s leading builders and local councils to ensure we provide the right mix of homes to help meet the housing demand of East Anglia.

Our properties range from apartments to semi-detached houses across Essex and Suffolk. Our sales team at Iceni are happy to answer any your questions and assist you with progressing a sale.


When you co-own a home with us, you can expect:

  • A fair assessment of your potential eligibility
  • Fair low market rentals on our share
  • Advice and co-operation when you want to increase your share
  • Our full support when you come to sell your home
    (if you own less than 100% at the time of sale)
