Develop and invest


Creating sustainable places that people love to live and work in.

We invest in creating the homes and workplaces of the future through residential and commercial land promotion and residential development. We acknowledge the UK’s growing housing crisis and are passionate about our role in boosting housing supply across the country and helping vibrant businesses to grow.


New homes to be delivered on our residential sites


Success-rate in planning applications since 2005.

A collaborative approach

Collaborative working is in our DNA. We strongly believe that bringing stakeholders together to share ambitions and ideas is the best way to shape future communities and truly create sustainable places for today and tomorrow.

We are constantly seeking sites and opportunities for future development across both public and private sectors and aim to secure the best possible outcomes for the communities and landowners we work with.

Getting the green light for new development is challenging and all development must navigate the UK’s complex planning system. This is why we are proud of our 98% success rate for the schemes we have promoted through planning applications since 2005.
