John said: “I’m very happy to return to Linden Homes because the company has such a good track record in delivering strategic land around the country, which I want to help grow even further.

“I want to add more sites that blend successfully with existing neighbourhoods, creating good linkages and a variety of new homes, in places where residents will enjoy living. It’s about building communities and sustaining local services and facilities.”

Linden Homes Group Managing Director Andrew Richards, said: “John’s appointment reaffirms our commitment to source and secure land where Linden Homes can develop the high quality homes that the UK desperately needs for families and the wider economy. His proven track record strengthens the existing team in place and positions us for continued growth.”
