      Our people

      Our team is growing to continue to support driving development in Oxfordshire.

With a diverse range of experience, spanning four decades, in the residential development world, Grant brings expertise from his work within commercial investment, asset management, and the industrial and logistics sector.

      In May 2022 our Oxford team grew further when Turnberry Planning joined the family.
