Richborough Estates expands its team
Strategic land firm Richborough Estates has made various appointments to its team.
Briony Stenhouse and Alanna Mahoney have been appointed assistant land and planning managers for the west and east divisions respectively. They will work to identify development sites that are free from constraints and suitable for the future delivery of housing.
Ellie Cudmore has been appointed team administrator and Tom Ball has joined the business as financial controller, supported by Jon Dunman as part-time finance director.
James Carpenter has joined as planning director with responsibility for planning strategy.
Paul Campbell, joint managing director at Richborough Estates, said: “The process of housing delivery is changing, with strategic land companies now responsible for the delivery of 50 per cent of outline planning applications for new homes.
“Last year housing delivery across England fell 78,000 homes short of the government’s target. If this trend continues, some local authorities will find themselves with a significant shortfall of housing stock.
“We currently have around 100 active projects across the country and if all of these sites come forward, they would contribute approximately 7 per cent of the annual target and would play a significant role in ensuring a continued supply of new homes.”
