It is a charitable Industrial and Provident Society and a housing association.

It is a member of the Adactus Group Structure and a subsidiary of Adactus Housing Group Ltd.

History

The Association was formed in March 2007 following a 2006 vote in favour of stock transfer by tenants of Chorley Borough Council.  The Association immediately joined the Adactus Group Structure as a subsidiary of Adactus Housing Group Ltd.

In 2009, the Association took on the management of Lune Valley Housing Association's 79 properties.

In 2009, the Association entered into a management agreement with Adactus Housing Association.  The agreement transfered the management of 1,800 AHA properties, known as the West Area stock, to CCH (this number has since grown to 2,200).
