Thomas Sinden has been appointed by Clarion Housing Group, the UK’s largest social landlord, to deliver the design and build of 48 apartments alongside a new Lidl supermarket over a new 2.5 storey basement car park.

The development in Caterham, which has a Gross Development Value (GDV) of £17.5m, will deliver new homes for affordable rent comprising a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.

The site on Croydon Road was once a car garage and has been derelict since the business closed in 1994.

Andrew Instance, Construction Director of Thomas Sinden said,
“We’re delighted to be working with Clarion, Employer’s Agent Gleeds and Calford Seaden Design team to deliver affordable housing which is much needed within the Tandridge District Council area and also to provide the Shell and Core to allow a new Lidl Supermarket to be established which will be a great asset for the wider local community.”

Richard Cook, Group Director of Development at Clarion Housing Group, said:
“We’re looking forward to working with Thomas Sinden to deliver a high quality and sustainable development. The housing crisis has been exacerbated by the pandemic and we know how important these affordable new homes will be for the community.”
