Set within the award-winning Beaulieu neighbourhood in Chelmsford, L&Q is launching a brand-new collection of Shared Ownership homes at the hugely popular development, The Arbour. The release will take place on the 2nd December and closely follows a successful November launch which saw all homes reserved within just two weeks. Catering to a wide variety of buyers, the new release includes a selection of one- and two-bedroom apartments and semi-detached houses.
