Thakeham introduced Southern to the land opportunity and after a rigorous interview process Southern were appointed as the preferred buyer. Once Southern had acquired the land, Thakeham were appointed to oversee the RMA process with Arun DC. The Lees Yard project demonstrates the successful partnership model Thakeham employs, having not only secured Southern Housing their Reserved Matters approval but also applied Thakeham house types that helped to deliver a cost effective project. The in-house design team has commenced the Detailed Design stage, with works expected to start on site in summer 2023.
Thakeham has now worked with Southern across a total of six projects.
