A Cheshire village is to host the first development by a new North West strategic joint venture formed between Lovell Partnerships and a national housing group’s development arm.
The joint venture between Lovell, part of Morgan Sindall Group, and Clarion Housing Group’s Latimer are to deliver and market 99 new homes in Weston, Cheshire, with 30 of the homes set to be “affordable”.
Homes will be a mix of three-, four- and five-bedroom homes and six two-bedroom bungalows. As part of the planning agreement, Lovell and Latimer will be contributing up to £206,000 towards the area and creating 1.36ha of public open space.
Of the “affordable” homes, 20 will be for affordable rent and 10 will be for shared ownership. These homes will be managed by Clarion Housing.
“We are extremely pleased to announce Clarion Housing Group as the region’s next joint venture partner,” said Lee Sale, Lovell Partnerships’ North West regional managing director.
“The brand-new development in Weston is a fantastic site to kick-off this partnership with Latimer. Lovell has worked closely with Cheshire East Council, Gladman’s, and Weston residents to ensure the scheme will benefit the whole area.”
Richard Cook, Clarion Housing’s group director of development, added: “We are delighted to be entering into a long-term partnership with a well-respected developer that shares Latimer’s passion for placemaking and delivering quality, well-designed homes for our residents.
“Working together with Lovell in a joint venture enables us to play a prominent role in shaping our new communities, while delivering much-needed affordable housing.”
