Redrow’s Southern division expansion plans gather pace

8th December 2021

Leading housebuilder Redrow’s Southern division expansion plans are gaining momentum following a raft of appointments and the confirmation of a new base.

Following the division’s launch and the appointment of Managing Director Rod Martin in the summer, the board has now been completed with the hiring of senior personnel including Sam Graham (Head of Land), Dan Hoare (Head of Technical), Katie Lamb (Planning Director), Sarah Cooper (Finance Director), Stuart Galloway (Head of Sales), Justin Brown (Head of Construction). Joining the team on 4th January, will be Glenn Coles (Head of Strategic Land), Adam Ainsworth (Commercial Director).

A further 19 roles remain open for applications, including Engineering Manager, Marketing Manager, Chief Quantity Surveyor and Head of Customer Services, with those coming into the new team having a real opportunity to shape the future direction of the nascent division.

Redrow Southern has signed the lease on an office in Crawley, perfectly located given the division’s focus on Surrey and West Sussex. The contemporary workspace will be designed with creativity and collaboration in mind.  

The initial three live sites coming under Redrow Southern’s remit will include two in Chichester (New Fields and Lavant View) and another separate development in Yapton (Meadow Gardens).

Along with the 400 new homes created in the areas above, Redrow Southern is actively identifying and acquiring land across the region and has exchanged contracts on sites in Angmering and East Hoathly. The housebuilder will be working closely with land agents to grow and develop new communities.

Once the division reaches maturity, it aims to deliver 600 homes per year which could create up to 2,000 new jobs for local people.

Rod Martin, Managing Director of Redrow’s Southern Division, said: “Our launch plans continue at pace and we have created a dynamic team with genuine expertise in the Surrey and West Sussex region. In addition to roles working out of the divisional hub in Crawley, our ambitious plans for the region will potentially create thousands of jobs which will benefit the local economy.

“A sense of space has never been more important to aspiring homebuyers and with flexible working in the ascendancy, people are comfortable venturing further out from major cities and towns than previously. Our focus on creating thriving communities that are sympathetic to their surroundings means we are confident there will be strong demand for our high-quality homes across the Southern region.”
