More Capacity. More Capability. More Homes: Meet Mount Anvil’s New Development Director

2018 saw us buck the trends of a challenging market to deliver outstanding new London homes and record profits for our business and our partners. Now we’re growing our Land and Development team to ensure we keep raising the bar. Read more below.

Mount Anvil has grown significantly over the past three decades, but core values like ‘Raise the bar’ have remained constant. This is why we’ve adapted how we buy land in London. We’ve chosen to focus spending our time and resources building lasting, mutually valuable relationships with small number of partners. It’s the right thing to do, and it works – for us, for our partners and for London.

2018 saw us build more of the high-quality homes that London needs, entered into a range of new and repeat partnerships, and delivered record profits for the business and our partners. We’re only just getting started. Our approach has seen as add over 4,000 homes to our pipeline of London homes in the past two years, and we’ve recruited some of the industry’s best development and planning professionals – from some of its biggest players – to our Land and Development team, ensuring that we have the capacity and the capability to keep delivering high-quality homes efficiently.

The latest addition to that team is Development Director Matt Walton. Matt is passionate about finding solutions to complex planning issues and committed to creating places where people want to live and work. He will oversee securing and optimising planning permission for key development sites. Matt has 20 years’ experience of heading up large-scale, complex development schemes. Most recently he was Development Director at St James, part of the Berkeley Group, where he secured planning for c.2,000 homes as part of the White City regeneration. He has previously been involved with some of London’s largest redevelopment schemes, including Nine Elms, Greenwich Millennium Village and the King’s Cross regeneration.

Despite market uncertainties, last year was our strongest ever. That’s down to our people, our values and our approach. With Matt firmly in the saddle, our Land and Development team has even greater capacity, capability and experience to continue developing key relationships, delivering for the business and our partners, and supplying the homes that London needs.
