Chase New Homes acquire former School in Saffron Walden

The land and buildings of the former Walden School have been sold to Chase (SW) Limited, part of the Chase New Homes group.

Chase New Homes CEO, Tony Carey, commented: “We are very pleased to be involved in this project. Whilst we understand it was not viable for it to continue as a school for numerous reasons, we look forward to breathing new life into the site in collaboration with the local community.

“We have considerable experience in successfully bringing these types of sites back into use and this will be fully utilised at Walden School. Planning for how the buildings and grounds will be used is in its early stages but we have already engaged with some local community groups and we hope to continue and expand this dialogue.”
