55 dwelling site sold at Ashdon Road, Saffron Walden

Turnstone has completed the sale of the last residential plot at Ashdon Road, Saffron Walden.

The project is a joint venture with the original owners of Ridgeons Builders Merchants, who sold the business to Huws Gray in 2018.

Having delivered a mixed use scheme comprising a new builders merchant, commercial and 167 dwellings, a remaining phase of commercial development land was subsequently promoted for a change of use for 55 dwellings and a small retail unit. Planning permission was won on appeal in 2018.

The plot was sold to Stonebond Properties for the construction of an affordable housing scheme for Clarion Housing Group. The sale completed in December 2022.
