Latimer and Clarion Housing Group

Latimer is the development arm of Clarion Housing Group, developing private homes in thriving, mixed-use communities.

The Clarion story started with William Sutton, a 19th century entrepreneur who gifted his entire fortune (£230 million in today’s money) to build affordable housing across major cities in the UK. We have been delivering on his legacy ever since.

The majority of homes we build will always be for affordable tenures, but building homes for outright sale is crucial for our business to develop both mixed sustainable communities and recycling any profits we make from those private sales back into building and maintaining more affordable homes.

What sets Latimer apart?

  • Our long-term commitment to the people who live in our homes.
  • Latimer communities are to be socially and environmentally sustainable.
  • We deliver consistent commitment to high quality and low carbon properties.
  • We don’t have shareholders, so we don’t face short-term demands to make profit at any cost.
  • We're driven by our commitment to quality, community and places that succeed.
  • We're a dependable partner.

Clarion Housing Group is the UK’s largest provider of affordable housing, with over 125,000 homes and more than 350,000 residents across the country.

As part of Clarion Housing Group, Latimer has an unrivalled balance sheet with net assets of more than £7bn and a turnover of close to £1bn per annum.

For the past 100 years we’ve been building communities that work for the long term.
