2020 sees continuing success for Mactaggart & Mickel’s Strategic Land division in England, after securing planning consent for more than 400 acres since 2017, representing land values of more than £200m.
Initially operating from the Group’s headquarters in Glasgow, the Strategic Land division, which has recently celebrated its 11th anniversary, has continued to grow into the South West from its regional office in Cheltenham.
Two new appointments have bolstered the team setting up a South East Region, bringing additional expertise to the table: Conor Roberts will cover the Thames Valley area and Andrew Smith has been appointed to cover the Oxford Cambridge Arc, operating from new offices in Paddington’s Merchant Square from this month.
The Strategic Land team is led by Ken Hopkins, Head of Strategic Land. He said: “We have high expectations for further growth during 2020, including a garden village proposal in Essex, boosting our presence in the South East.”
Over the year, Mactaggart & Mickel have diversified into various divisions, including Homes, Strategic Land, Timber Systems, Commercial Property, PRS and Investments.
