About us

Our balanced business

We are a leading UK home builder and urban regeneration partner with two balanced businesses: Housebuilding and Partnerships.


Our Housebuilding business develops private and affordable homes on land owned or controlled by the Group, located around London and the South East of England. It operates under the Countryside and Millgate brands.

- Industry-leading land bank

- South East-focused placemaking

- 89 per cent of land strategically sourced

- Excellent visibility of outlet growth

Our Partnerships business specialises in urban regeneration of public sector land, delivering private and affordable homes in partnership with local authorities and housing associations. It operates in and around London, the North West of England and the West Midlands.

- Capital-light and low risk model

- Relationship-led business with 30-year track record

- Strong political support for regeneration

- Significant visibility of work and growing pipeline

We have a balanced business with two differentiated, complementary divisions and a clear strategy for growth over the medium term. Growth in the Housebuilding division is underpinned by the Group’s industry-leading strategic land bank of 19,322 plots. 89 per cent of this land is strategically sourced via options and conditional contracts with an average 10 per cent discount to open market value.

The Partnerships model complements the Housebuilding division with a low risk, capital-light model building homes on public sector land, typically local authority estate regeneration and brownfield sites. The Group has a strong track record of partnership development and has an excellent pipeline of future work of 14,504 plots including those at preferred bidder stage.
