The Greater London division, which opened in 2010, is now well established and making significant contributions to the Group and is an integral part of the business moving forward.
Beautiful and innovative design, as well as exceptional quality and customer care defines our focus in Greater London. Creating bespoke schemes across the capital to world class standards has helped us to achieve a clear position in this prime residential market.
Greater London covers all London boroughs and has a number of centralised functions including, land buying; sales and marketing; customer service; and finance. Greater London brings together the expertise and skills we have amassed developing sites in the Capital and allows us to undertake more of our own construction with less reliance upon main contractors.
The Colindale Gardens division focuses entirely on delivering this highly important development for the Group. We recently received a resolution to grant planning for 2,900 new homes and up to 100,000 sq ft of commercial space. Under the planning agreement we will be providing healthcare and nursery facilities, land for a new school, a significant contribution to upgrade Colindale tube station, and 4 hectares of public open space and gardens. Colindale Gardens has a gross development value of over £1bn and is expected to take ten years to build.
