Fisher German shortlisted for deal of the year at the East Midlands Bricks Awards 2019

Ben Marshalsay of Fisher German

Fisher German has cause for celebration after being shortlisted for the Deal of the Year award at the East Midlands Bricks Awards 2019.

The deals in question saw Fisher German sell two sites in major multi-million pound deals with a combined value of more than £15 million. The deals will bring hundreds of homes to the East Midlands.

Sites in Earl Shilton, Leicestershire, and Brailsford, Derbyshire, were sold to housebuilder Avant Homes following two competitive tender processes. The 39 acre site off Heath Lane, in Earl Shilton, has planning permission for up to 350 properties and includes 0.6 hectares of employment land. The development will provide significant financial contributions to local education providers, healthcare services and highways and will help cater for a long-standing housing shortage in the town. The 11.5 acre site off Main Road, in Brailsford, has planning permission for up to 75 properties.

Ben Marshalsay, Head of Development at Fisher German said of the deals: “Both of these transactions were the culmination of many years hard work. Both landowning clients were private clients of Fisher German’s and to promote bare agricultural land through the planning process resulting in a planning permission is no mean feat.

“This work was undertaken by Fisher German’s planning team working alongside some private land promoters and took over 7 years in the case of Earl Shilton. We were obviously delighted within Fisher German’s development agency team to have sold both of these landmark development sites to Avant Homes, who are delivering a fantastic product in both locations.”
