10 years of success for luxury housebuilder’s land team
Award-winning housebuilder Mactaggart and Mickel are celebrating a decade of success from their Strategic Land Division this month.
Between 2009 and 2019, the luxury housebuilder’s Strategic Land Team have used their expertise and experience to identify and secure over 2,000 acres of land, four times the size of the Olympic Park in London. The team have an excellent track record of successfully taking land through the planning process, achieving planning consent for over 3,000 much needed homes in England
In just the last year, the team have secured an interest in 800 plots, submitted planning applications for 550 homes and gained planning consent for 485 new homes.
After almost 100 years of growth across Scotland, the housebuilder has recently expanded their house building operations into England bringing their vast experience and luxury home offering to the Cotswold market.
Ken Hopkins, Head of Strategic Land, Mactaggart and Mickel said:
“We are extremely proud of the achievements of the Mactaggart and Mickel Strategic Land Team. Over the last 10 years, the team have sold over £100m worth of land, making £84m for our landowner clients and their representatives.
“We are excited to move in to our second decade and look forward to continuing to bring forward more outstanding developments in England.”
Ed Monaghan, the Group CEO at Mactaggart and Mickel, said:
“As we continue to expand, this is becoming a really exciting time in the company’s history. We are extremely confident that the Strategic Land Team will only continue to achieve and exceed the expectations of landowners and land agents they work with.”
“This ongoing success and expansion provides opportunities and we are looking for the right people to join us on this journey.
