Andrews Land & New Homes strengthens team with appointment of new manager

andrewsProperty group Andrews has strengthened its Land & New Homes team with the appointment of James Read to the role of Land and Development Manager.

He will be based at the company’s Keynsham headquarters.

James joins the team from Bath-based social enterprise Curo where he was Land and Acquisition Manager.

In his new role, James will be responsible for identifying new land opportunities which prove ideal for residential development across Bristol, Bath, Wiltshire and Somerset.

He comments: “With such a significant shortage of housing across the South West, especially around Bristol and Bath, I am very much looking forward to getting land owners and developers together to agree deals that will go some way to rectifying this situation.

“My role involves a lot of getting out to meet land owners and developers, as well as assessing available land for its suitability for development and whilst it’s certainly very busy I thoroughly enjoy being an integral part of the process that will help provide quality new homes for local families.”
