Galliford Try and Together sign Runcorn housing deal

Galliford Try Partnerships and Together Housing have formed a joint venture to deliver 237 homes in Sandymoor, Runcorn, following a land deal with Homes England earlier this year.

The joint venture has submitted a detailed planning application to Halton Council for the scheme; this covers a plot to the east of Village Street, and is designed to bridge the gap to two existing developments to the north and south.

These have been delivered by David Wilson Homes and Morris Homes over the past decade; development of the Sandymoor site began in the 1980s.

Under the deal with Together, the partners will deliver a mix of 237 homes, split between two, three, and four-bed properties which will be available for open market sale via Galliford Try Partnership’s housebuilding arm, Linden Homes.

As well as the homes, Galliford Try will also build an 100-apartment extra care scheme, which will be owned by Halton Housing.

The scheme is set to complete in 2024, with the first homes to be available from 2020.

DAC Beachcroft advised Galliford Try Partnerships, while Bevan Brittan advised Together Housing on the JV. The professional team on the project includes planner Indigo; Sten Architecture; and JDA Architects.
