Progressive and Latimer plot Chester homes 

Plans have been submitted for a 133-apartment development located off Charterhall Drive next to the recently completed Shot Tower development. 

Progressive Living and Latimer, the development arm of Clarion Housing Association, have lodged a planning application with Cheshire West and Chester Council for the scheme, part of the City Place masterplan. 

Fronting the Shropshire Union Canal, the seven-storey project is designed by AHR Architects and will feature 57 one-bedroom flats and 76 two-bedroom flats. A total of 53 of the apartments will be available for share ownership.

Progressive Living sold the site to Clarion last November and is developing the project for the housing association.

“We are delighted to finally get this application in,” said David Fairclough, director at Progressive Living.

“This prime site in Chester city centre will deliver a sustainable mixed-tenure scheme and provide a range of homes that the city desperately needs and we look forward to working with Latimer going forward.”

Turley is the planning consultant and Zerum is the project manager. Exterior Architecture is the landscape architect and RoC Consulting is the structural engineer.

Other elements of the City Place masterplan already delivered include the 70,000 sq ft One City Place office building and the 194-bedroom Moxy hotel.
