...Investment In Strategic Land

A key appointment has been made at Linden Homes with Andrew Tildesley joining as Strategic Land Managing Director. This appointment comes as the business announces its intention to significantly increase their investment in strategic land with the aim of doubling its current portfolio of sites in the next three years.

Andrew will be the first Managing Director to have been appointed in this role to drive strategic land, and leads a growing team with six regional strategic land managers who specialise in identifying and promoting land with longer term future housing potential.

Andrew, who will be based at Linden Homes’ office in Exeter said: “Strategic land is moving up a gear for Linden Homes. Currently less than 10 per cent of annual completions come from strategic land sites which identifies a huge opportunity to add value to the business by delivering more strategic projects. We are looking for suitable land opportunities across all regions although currently we have a particular focus on sourcing more land opportunities for our Midlands and South East business units.

“Taking on this role which is a new position created by the company shows Linden Homes’ commitment to strategic land. I’m looking forward to working with the team here on our current sites and delivering new and exciting opportunities that we hope to secure in the next couple of years.”

Ian Hessay, Divisional Managing Director, commented: “Andrew joins at a key stage of Linden Homes’ future plans within the land division. We currently have some major projects underway so growing the team will only help increase our portfolio of future projects. We are focussed on the strategic land arm of our business over the next three years so it will be interesting to watch some great opportunities unfold with Andrew at the reigns.”
