The land promoter has appointed Jordan Gresham as director for the North as demand grows for residential land in the region.
Gresham joins Birmingham-based Richborough Estates from housebuilder Taylor Wimpey, where he was strategic land director for the last two years of a stint that spanned more than a decade.
In his new role, Gresham will be responsible for identifying land for residential and mixed-use schemes, securing planning consent and bringing the sites to market.
His patch stretches from the North West, across to Sheffield and as far north as Northumberland.
Gresham joins a team made up of regional manager, Harry Jackson and land and planning manager, Alanna Mahoney.
Jonathan Bloor, managing director of Richborough Estate’s Western Division, said: “The North of England is seeing high demand for new homes from housebuilders and local authorities but there is a shortage of suitable oven-ready land.
“Jordan will help plug that gap by quickly building on our existing pipeline of sites which already has potential to deliver around 3,000 new homes in areas including Harrogate, Warrington, and Greater Manchester.”
Cheshire East Council granted consent for 37,000 sq ft of offices, 93,000 sq ft of light industrial use, and 126,000 sq ft of warehouse accommodation, as well as 175 homes.
