What are we looking for? 

We’re currently seeking potential development sites, with or without planning consent, across the UK.

  • Typically, we construct 30 or 40 bedroom care homes (GIFAs 2200m2 to 3000m2).
  • Sites can range from 0.9 to 2 acres in size.
  • Located in urban areas and close to transport links.
  • Our homes are a good employment generator – we’ll employ over 100 people which is a key planning benefit.
  • We have secured funding in place so we have the ability to act quickly and meet tight timeframes and deadlines.
  • Most acquisitions will be on a subject to planning basis. However, we’ll consider unconditional offers where there is low planning risk.
  • We’ll consider refurbishment opportunities where floor area requirements can be met.
  • We’ll consider being part of large mixed use/regeneration sites.
  • We have a flexible approach to land acquisition including the ability to enter into joint ventures with land owners via hybrid planning applications.
