In June 2018 we stepped up our development ambitions in the North with a land deal for a 23 acre site in Sandbach, Cheshire. Latimer, the development arm of Clarion Housing Group, exchanged contracts with Gladman Land for the Abbey Road site on which it planned to build 165 new homes.

Planning permission was secured in 2018. Cheshire-based firm The Lane End Group were appointed to build the homes, and construction began in 2019.

The development is due to be completed by 2022. It will contain a mix of two-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom flats; and two, three and four-bedroom houses for private sale, shared ownership and affordable rent.
