Regional House Builder Moves Its Head Office To South Yorkshire In Business Expansion

Regional developer Linden Homes East Yorkshire is celebrating a head office re-location to Doncaster as part of on-going business plans to expand its geographical operational area.

The move to new larger office space at South Quay, Lakeside Boulevard, Doncaster is a strategic re-location designed to assist the company in entering into new markets.
In addition, it will allow further growth within the existing business and provide opportunity for further recruitment, says Linden Homes East Yorkshire regional managing director Mark Connors.

Some 40 office based staff have made the 40 mile move from Hessle in Hull, the company’s previous head office since 2010.

The move to a prime location in Doncaster is as a result of a number of important business factors.

Mark explains: “Firstly, due to the expansion of our business unit’s geographical spread, our new office positions us into a central location giving us the potential to search for development opportunities within South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

“More importantly, being based in Doncaster means we can maintain building developments in our existing patch; part of East Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and North East Lincolnshire. The move will allow us to increase our volume and maximise our opportunities.”

While Linden Homes East Yorkshire has not been active in South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire in the past due to operational offices being located too far away, the re-location provides an excellent opportunity to develop new homes in the heart of England.

The immediate and surrounding geographical area is very attractive to home buyers, says Mark – with location being a key factor.

“Nottinghamshire offers us access to the vibrancy of Nottingham city centre with its bustling shopping area, nightlife, leisure facilities and educational prowess. The surrounding towns and villages have seen expansion and considerable investment in recent years and are very attractive propositions for new homes.

“Derbyshire has been voted as one of the best places in the country to live, with its economic centre at Derby and its array of amazing attractions on the doorstep. The Peak District National Park opens the County to a vast area of natural beauty and some of the smaller towns are amongst the most aspirational locations to live in the country.

“South Yorkshire is home to the thriving city of Sheffield and the principal towns of Doncaster, Rotherham and Barnsley. Within this area there are around 1.34 million people, and there are excellent employment opportunities in this thriving economy as well as excellent transport connections to the rest of the UK both by air, road and rail.”

During 2018, the business has continued to grow across East and North Yorkshire, with the developer having acquired land at existing and new locations to build 1,370 plots with and estimated GDV (Gross development value) of £288 million.

A single land deals for a further 40 plots, with a GDV of £7 million, is already poised for completion in 2019.

Mark added: “The continued regional growth we have seen has been extremely encouraging and is allowing us to build our reputation for delivering desirable, sustainable and high quality developments in our existing and new operational area”.

“We are delighted to be able to work with key agents and land owners to meet the demand for housing with many developments in the pipeline.

“I would like to thank our Doncaster team for all their hard work, as they continue to strengthen our relationships with home owners, subcontractors, consultants and service providers.”

The company is actively looking for land purchasing opportunities among landowners. Anyone who wants to find out more can contact Linden Homes East Yorkshire land director Matthew Barker at matthew.barker@lindenhomes.co.uk
