Growth-focused Lovell announces land and partnership manager for East Anglia
Lovell has appointed Will Wright as land and partnership manager for East Anglia. He will lead on the acquisition of strategic sites for development as the company delivers growing numbers of high-quality homes across the region.
Will joins Lovell from property agents Savills where he was an associate development surveyor advising landowners across Norfolk and Suffolk on opportunities for residential development.
In his new position, he will help Lovell secure further land in attractive locations where the company can develop much-needed new homes, including schemes with housing association and local authority partners.
Lovell regional managing director Simon Medler says: “Will’s extremely strong skill set includes extensive experience of strategic land acquisition. He also brings impressive knowledge of the local residential property market to the pivotal role he will play as the company grows its portfolio of high-quality residential developments across the region, helping us bring forward increasing numbers of high quality homes in places where people will love to live.”
Will, a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, says: “It’s exciting to join Lovell at a time of major expansion and I look forward to helping further enhance the company’s considerable reputation as a market-leading developer of high-quality homes.”
Current Lovell developments in the region include Station Fields, a £13.7 million development of 56 village homes for open market sale and affordable rent in Mendlesham, Suffolk. Lovell is also set to start construction later this year on St Mary’s View: a £12 million, 40-home development in the Suffolk village of Gislingham.
Lovell is also behind Heath Farm, a £58.6 million scheme creating 162 open market sale homes and 51 affordable homes in picturesque Holt, north Norfolk. In King’s Lynn, Lovell is about to launch Dewside, a £14.2 million development of 89 open market sale and affordable homes which is the second to be delivered through Lovell’s large-scale partnership with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.
