Elan Homes has appointed John Beardsell strategic land director for the Elan group.
Beardsell is based at Elan’s Northern headquarters in Cheshire, with the business currently focusing on sites in the North West, north Wales and the Midlands, plus areas where the need and shortfall in supply is greatest.
The firm has also promoted Shaun McCarthy from technical director for the Northern region to the new position of group technical director.
Beardsell said: “I’ve taken on a new role within the business and it’s a great opportunity to help shape the future of the company through the sites we acquire.
“We are identifying lots of sites and opportunities to ensure a steady stream of developments over the medium to long term.
“Location is everything and has an impact on the desirability of the homes as places to live. From proximity to local services and sustainability credentials to technical constraints and timescales for delivery, we need to consider all the challenges and opportunities on a site-by-site basis.”
