About Us

Rykneld Homes is responsible for the management, maintenance and improvement of around 7,600 properties and the neighbourhoods in which they are located on behalf of North East Derbyshire District Council.

Rykneld Homes was established in 2007 and manages around 7,600 properties across North East Derbyshire.

North East Derbyshire is largely rural in nature, with the housing stock dispersed in small towns and villages. Rykneld Homes is located centrally within the district, with its offices at 2013 Mill Lane, Wingerworth, Chesterfield.

In 2013, Rykneld Homes became registered with the Regulator of Social Housing and started developing, acquiring, and building for sale its own housing. It now owns 140 properties (including shared ownership) as a Registered Provider of Social Housing.

Rykneld Homes is one of the largest employers in the district, with 247 members of staff. The Company is governed by a Board of Directors, comprising two executive directors, four Council-appointed members, and three professional independent members, including the Chair. The Company is wholly owned by North East Derbyshire District Council.
