At Sanctuary Homes we take our role in meeting the UK’s housing shortage seriously and we are building more new homes than ever before.

Over the next ten years we intend to develop 30,000 homes. Some of these will be for sale, some will be for shared ownership and others will meet the need for additional rented homes.

To meet our target we intend to deliver over 3,000 homes a year from 2020 so we are continuing to purchase new land on which to build these homes.

If you have a land opportunity that you would like to share with us, please contact us at and the Land Manager from your region will respond.

We have a specialist in-house Land and Planning team who are based all across the country and bring detailed local knowledge to the appraisal of all sites.

We have a clear strategy of what we are looking for. This enables us to appraise all opportunities quickly so we can let you know whether your site is of interest to us.

We are flexible about terms and will structure a deal to suit the seller and the site, using outright purchase, conditional contracts and partnership agreements.

Our financial strength and expertise enables us to agree and complete deals quickly.

Our in-house construction team enables us to provide competitive construction costs, maximising the value we can offer for land.
