AT A GLANCE

As a Master Developer which focuses on the delivery of strategic sites, we seek to provide a tangible financial dividend for our investors and a social dividend for our stakeholders across our entire portfolio. We believe in doing things right and we define ourselves by the quality of our projects.

WHAT WE DO...

At the core of our business are the strategic sites where, as Master Developer, we are currently bringing forward 5,370 acres of land predominantly within 100 miles of London through our fully serviced land parcel model. Our commercial developments and Catesby sites are respectively delivering investments in strong markets and housing in locations of proven need. The revenue created by these developments allows us to reinvest in our strategic site portfolio.

WHO WE WORK WITH...

We work with our land owning partners, local authorities, communities and businesses, as well as the Homes and Communities Agency and our housebuilder and commercial customers, to use all the levers available to accelerate the delivery of homes, spaces, places and communities of real quality. We actively encourage the small and medium-sized housebuilding market by reducing the barriers to delivery through licence structures which reduces upfront payments and allows us to share in the retail sales price achieved. 

HOW WE DO IT...

We believe our approach is different. By listening to and working with the people on the ground who will be affected by our developments, we build confidence, bring disused land into development faster and make sure that the impact of change is a positive one. We invest early so that key infrastructure and amenities that people want – parks, schools, bike lanes and access roads – are in place for the first people who arrive, not somewhere down the track. We also focus hard on quality because things that work well, feel right, look good and last a long time are the essential components of great places.
