Countryside lays foundations for East Midlands expansion

Countryside’s East Midlands expansion is now well underway following the launch of two new offices and a major recruitment drive to build up a substantial local team.

Having opened a Wolverhampton office in 2016, the housebuilder has now extended its reach across the Midlands with the launch of a new South Midlands Office in Solihull, in addition to an East Midlands office, which is now established at the Grove Business Park in Leicester.

The move forms part of the company’s wider plans for growth within the region by harnessing Countryside’s partnership model to meet the increasing demand for mixed tenure housing developments throughout the Midlands.

The new East Midlands region has several new housing developments in the pipeline already with the first new project, which has a development value in excess of £30m, commencing this month at Newark, with more to follow in the next few months.

A framework agreement has also been signed to develop 1,000 homes per annum with Midland Heart Housing Association. As a result of the expansion, Countryside is looking for new recruits at all levels – from apprentice to senior management – to fuel the growth, in its sales, build, commercial, land and development departments.

Glyn Mabey, Managing Director at Countryside Partnerships East Midlands, said: “There is a significant need for new housing in the East Midlands and I am excited about the opportunities that are emerging within the region.

“Our expansion is not only a testament to the success of our existing partnership business model, but also our nationally recognised reputation as a great employer that allows us to inject significant investment into our people.

“I look forward to seeing what the future will bring, as we work towards showcasing our reputation as a leading employer, and homebuilder in the area.”

Countryside aims to create mixed-tenure communities of between 50 and 3,000 homes for first time buyers and families across the East Midlands by 2021.

Glyn added: “We are set to launch our first development of 160 homes, The Boulevard, in Newark imminently, with more developments to come hot on its heels.

“We have a healthy development pipeline, but have ambitious growth plans, so we are always looking for new land opportunities that fit with our business development strategy.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £33.60 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
