Cross Street-based AG Project and Building Consultancy (Anderton Gables), has secured a place on the JV North framework, a consortium of housing associations and local authorities.

The £560m framework will enable the framework partners to build 4,000 homes from now to the end of 2025.

The JV North consortium is one of the biggest developers of new social homes in the UK, and its members are building the equivalent of 3.5 homes every day.
