Whilst the name might be new, the Halsbury team certainly isn’t new to housebuilding. Halsbury Homes is led by chief executive David Bryant. David’s career highlights include over 25 years at Persimmon Homes and a spell as chairman of the New Homes Marketing Board. David explained that Halsbury is determined to be different from its competitors.
“Quite simply, we aim to take a more considered approach to everything we do; we like to call it ‘the Halsbury Way’. Being driven at all times by our customers’ needs means that we take our responsibilities very seriously for what is often the most significant purchase in someone’s life. And we’re passionate about halting the decline in both design and quality of new homes, putting style back where it belongs and maintaining traditional values whist building desirable, more spacious solutions to modern living.
“I am very excited at this opportunity to develop a completely new company with such a great team, and am sure Richmond Park will be the first of many success stories for Halsbury, our partners and purchasers alike”.
Bryant continued, “With new housing development being of such strategic importance to the overall economy, it is also important to recognise the combined roles of our banks, the HCA (Homes and Communities Agency) and local District Councils in enabling individual house builders like Halsbury Homes to deliver much needed new homes. For example, at Richmond Park, Whitfield the practical help received from Dover District Council with our initial application for 94 plots, combined with funding support from the Secure Trust Bank and the HCAs Large Infrastructure Fund, has enabled the first phase of 1250 plots to commence this month. And at Loddon, Norfolk, we would like to thank South Norfolk District Council for their positive approach, not only in bringing forward our St. George’s Park opportunity but working tirelessly with us to resolve planning challenges. This development of 202 new homes also benefits from major infrastructure funding support via the Norwich Growth Fund and Hampshire Trust Bank. We are also indebted to Jason Green at Investec Investment Bank for guiding us through our various finance raising activities and very much look forward to continuing our relationship with Investec, as we expand and go from strength to strength”.
Headquartered near Norwich, Norfolk, Halsbury Homes has three fully funded developments currently underway in East Anglia and the southern counties, with a team well versed in delivery across these locations. The company has a strong land base, whilst actively looking to increase this, and a target annual build programme of 250 units across each of the first five years.
