The additional funding was negotiated at very competitive rates and none of NHH's existing funding arrangements have been affected.

Paul Stevens, head of housing finance at Santander Corporate Banking said: "We are delighted to have established a new long term funding partnership with NHH, a very ambitious organisation with a track record for delivering quality housing and services to its customers.

Kevin Thompson, NHH chief executive said: "In the current economic climate, more people than ever are looking towards social landlords for support. It is therefore vital that we deliver the ambitious building programme we have but at the same time remaining financially stable.
