Town and Country Housing: First Half Year Trading Statement


14 November 2019


Town and Country Housing (TCH) is today issuing its consolidated unaudited trading statement, for the first half of financial year ending 31 March 2020.


 6 months to Sept 19

 6 months to Sept 18



Operating surplus



Surplus on disposal of assets



Net interest payable



Taxation & non-controlling interest








Note: No assumption is made about any gain on revaluation of investment properties in either year, as revaluation is undertaken at year end.


TCH became part of Peabody Group on 9 May 2019 and will continue as an operating subsidiary.


The core rental business continued to perform strongly. The operating surplus before private sales and shared ownership 1st tranche sales was in-line with 2018 despite the final year of the 1% rent reduction.


Private sales and 1st tranche shared ownership sales generated a surplus of £1.6m, which was £1.2m ahead of 2018 due to the completion of the final phase of Lakewood in Tunbridge Wells.


At 30 September 2019 TCH had eleven properties for sale. Six properties were reserved, and one was sold pending legal completion. The remaining four available properties had all been actively marketed for less than three months.  


Disposal of assets provided a further £1.3m of surplus.


Net interest payable was £0.7m higher than 2018 due to increased loan margins from loan modifications as part of the merger with Peabody Group.


Future Information Releases


The next financial reporting will be the statutory financial statements which we expect to release in late July / early August 2020.
