Growth and Development Update – November 2023

Growth and Development update – November 2023

In our latest update we share our key development news and recent scheme handovers, and highlight our areas of focus and growth aspirations.

Alongside the whole housing sector, Longhurst Group continues to face a range of challenges and we've laid out our response to these in our recently published annual report. More information can be found below.

Our development programme remains strong and, as of 30 September 2023, we've delivered:

  • 234 completions
  • 75 new build sales, generating £7.3m in sales income
  • 29 asset sales, generating £2.8m in sales income.

We've been named in the top 30 of Inside Housing's Biggest Builders survey for the second consecutive year and remain on course to complete more than 600 homes by the end of this financial year.

Our long-term business plan supports continued delivery of this size, including the completion of our Homes England programme to deliver nearly 2,000 new homes through our strategic partnership.

We remain open to new opportunities across Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire, while retaining our strategy of helping improve accessibility and continuing to deliver quality homes for all.

In this update, you'll also hear about a stakeholder event we're hosting at Stamford College on Monday, 11 December. If you're available, we'd love you to come along and meet the team to discuss how we can work together to help meet the continued demand for affordable housing across the eastern region.

As always, thank you for reading and for your ongoing support.

Marcus Keys
Executive Director of Growth and Development.

Resetting our focus for future success

Titled 'Resetting our focus for future success' our annual report outlines our priorities and highlights our key financial statistics and performance data while acknowledging where we need to improve, and more importantly how we’re going to do that.

Created to be accessible, engaging and interactive, this year's report is full of stories from our customers and communities that highlight how we've continued to support them and realise our vision to improve lives.

Resetting our focus features a series of video case studies, including the one below showcasing a tour of some of our development sites by our Group Board and committee members earlier this year.
