Following its selection as preferred developer in July 2011, Galliford Try’s Partnerships business has finalised a £23m deal on the Gallions Quarter development in East London.

Secondly, The Mayor of London has granted approval for the £52m redevelopment of the old St Clement's hospital site in Mile End, East London. The contract provides for a minimum of 223 homes, including provision of 21 homes to be granted to London's first Community Land Trust, as well as a further 54 affordable homes. The remaining 148 homes will be sold under the Linden Homes brand.

Festival Housing Association has named Galliford Try Partnerships as preferred bidder to build a 101-apartment retirement village in Malvern, Worcestershire in a contract worth £11.8m.

We will continue to work with our partners in government and the housing industry to provide much-needed affordable housing wherever we can."
