Paul Brocklehurst, Chief Executive of Catesby Estates said “Our business is growing, and we needed to facilitate our land promotion portfolio expansion with an office focused on the south of the UK, which is a key target area for us.  The country is in the grip of a housing crisis, and land promoters are a key part of enabling housing delivery, with housebuilders able to acquire land with planning permission and to start building much sooner.” 

“Our portfolio is at an all-time high, and with the government identifying the need to deliver 300,000 new homes each year, we are well placed to help support these ambitions and are actively seeking new land opportunities.”

We are looking to increase our portfolio further, so please keep sending land site details through to us at: .
