Welcome to Lyng
Lyng Community Association is proud to be at the heart of West Bromwich’s flagship residential development. We provide 200 high quality homes for affordable rent, provide a management service for a further 250 homes and manage and maintain shared communal areas across the mixed tenure estate under a Management Agreement with Lyng Management Company as well as building a community spirit to make the Lyng a vibrant place to live.
We’re a not-for-profit organisation set up after a group of pioneering local people united to redevelop the old Lyng estate by creating homes fit for modern living, as well as fantastic open spaces.
Now is an exciting time in the history of the Lyng as we shape our thriving community, keeping our focus on sustainable regeneration and local empowerment. The 2017 Tenant Satisfaction Survey provided us with a fantastic 97% overall satisfaction rate – putting us amongst the best performing housing associations across the UK.

Estate Clean Up Produces 26 full Bags of Litter!
Many thanks to the young people of the estate (and those slightly less young!) for helping in the Lyng Estate Clean Up this summer. We picked up 26 full bags of litter but more importantly everyone got together to clean up the whole estate including the park area and private streets. We are aware that a lot of litter comes from people walking through on their way to and from the town centre but we were delighted to see everyone determined to make a difference to their community!
Fashion Show Success
The Lyng Fashion show held in June attracted a sell out crowd in support of the Lyng Defibrillator Fund – the show raised £750.00 and the volunteer models showed off a variety of High Street clothing lines which were available to buy on the night.
Many thanks to our volunteers and everyone who attended.
