Solihull-based Terra Strategic has promoted Jordan Langdon-Bates to land and development director, a reflection of the firms’ recent rapid growth.

Having joined the firm in 2018, Mr Langdon-Bates has been responsible for taking a large number of sites through the land promotion and planning process, after joining from Brackley Investments Ltd, where he worked as a development surveyor.

James O’Shea, managing director of Terra said “Terra currently controls 24 sites, with circa 460 acres of residential land that is capable of delivering 2,200 new homes. Jordan has been instrumental to driving the growth of the business ever since he joined almost four years ago. He has been able to use his past experience of working within a Local Authority planning department – and for the land arm of a regional housebuilder – to his advantage. He is an asset to the business, and we are delighted to recognise his commitment and achievements by promoting him to a director role.”

Jordan Langdon-Bates, land and development director for Terra said “It is really pleasing to reflect on Terra’s growth over recent years. The expansion of the in-house team and Terra’s national profile has grown considerably over the past 18 months. While we are still very interested in promoting sites with the potential for around 50 homes or more, we have recently made significant headway in securing much larger strategic land opportunities that could each accommodate up to 1,000 plots.

Terra’s knowledge of the residential land market, and our ability to work hand-in-hand with our sister companies Hayfield and Living Space on both luxury and affordable housing opportunities, is what is setting us apart in this competitive marketplace. We work collaboratively to secure viable planning permissions, which are immediately deliverable. In the process, we also listen to the needs and wishes of landowners, by structuring deals accordingly. I am really excited about the opportunities we are currently working on and what this year has in store.”

Terra strategic are currently dealing with a number of sites nationwide, including the promotion of a 96-acre Banwell Garden Village development near Weston-Super-Mare and a 98-acre site in Costessey, Norfolk. They have also entered a hybrid agreement and part purchase of a 49-acre site to the east of Swindon, allocated for up to 290 homes, forming part of the New Eastern Villages allocation.
