You are here: Home > Welcome to Westlea Housing


Westlea Housing (now trading as GreenSquare) is a charitable housing association regulated by the Tenant Services Authority.

Westlea was set up in 1995 to take over and improve homes previously owned by North Wiltshire District Council. We now work throughout Wiltshire and Swindon and provide over 6,000 homes to people with a range of housing needs, particularly those who cannot afford to rent or buy property on the open market.

Westlea's work is overseen by a Management Board that includes elected resident members. Resident and user involvement is central to what we do and a new set of guidelines was introduced in 2005 to ensure this happens in a meaningful way. Information about our Management Board members and senior management team can be found here.

We employ more than 300 staff at our head office in Chippenham, including a team who carry out most of the repairs to our homes. The day to day operation of Westlea is managed by a Managing Director who is responsible to the Management Board for the efficient running of all aspects of our business.

We work hard to expand our provision of new homes and other services to meet continuing demand in our area. We develop new homes for rent, shared ownership and - through our commercial subsidiary - homes for sale.

Going beyond the bricks and mortar, we understand how important it is that neighbourhoods are good places in which to live. We work in partnership with residents and other agencies to tackle local issues such as opportunities for young people and crime and security matters.

Westlea is an enthusiastic adopter of the ‘iN business for neighbourhoods’ initiative and is an organisation that has clear and strong values that shape what we do and how we do it. We aim for service excellence, quality, professionalism, fairness and accountability. We work in partnership with residents, staff, our local authority partners, funders and our regulator to achieve our aims and objectives.

Westlea Housing Association Limited is a registered Industrial and Provident Society with charitable status, No. 28095R. It is part of GreenSquare Group.

From 1 April 2012, Westlea began trading as GreenSquare.
