The latest Development updates

Chartwell Plaza Site Update

  • Plot handovers are due in December within the tower section of the development
  • Since the devastating Grenfell Tower incident in London, cladding has become a sensitive topic with mortgage lenders. Reacting to the general concerns across the industry, we’ve taken the decision to replace the originally proposed external façade materials, replacing this with a fully regulated, fully approved material which is in fact a higher specification than the original.
  • Further details about this issue can be read here
