A Unique Approach


Sustainability

We have been recognised as a leader in sustainable development.

With sustainability being a core principle of the planning system today we believe that being a good corporate citizen benefits all our stakeholders, whilst creating added value and the delivery of new business opportunities. 

 

Integrity and Trust

At Countryside we invest in our employees as we recognise the key to success for any company is its people.  We have continuity of management with many senior people having been with us for a good number of years which is important to our partners on the many long-term schemes with which we're involved.

A key message to our people is integrity and straightforwardness in all that we do. Hopefully from that approach comes a reputation for honesty and reliability which underlies everything we do.

 

"Working with Countryside has been simple, straightforward and consistent.  We choose to undertake a number of important schemes with them in the Cambridge Southern Fringe because of their multi-disciplinary approach and first class track record in creating sustainable new communities and commercial property development.”

Richard Pemberton, Director, Trumpington Farm Company

 

Partnerships

Many of the Group's projects are successfully developed in partnership with other organisations, local authorities, housing associations and local communities. Partnerships are often the best way of successfully developing complex sites which benefit from the combined experience, skills and shared resources of the partners.

We are pleased to be able to offer a comprehensive range of bespoke solutions to our partners.  This enables us to create tailor-made solutions to your particular development requirements. You will therefore benefit from an optimal solution that utilises the skills of one of the UK’s most experienced developers.

Countryside was a member of the HCA's original Delivery Partner Panel (DPP) and has subsequently been chosen as a member of DPP2 for the South East, Midlands and Northern Lots.  We are also members of the GLA's London Development Panel.

 

Our New Business Requirements

New Homes and Communities

  • Entering into promotional agreements.
  • Acquiring smaller residential sites with a minimum Gross Development Value of £10m.
  • Developing large employment parks allied to new communities or regeneration opportunities.

Regeneration

  • Developing new estate regeneration schemes.
  • Delivering partnership based affordable housing.
  • Securing design and build contracting opportunities – new build and refurbishment.

"We have enjoyed a long and highly productive relationship with Countryside, during which time they have carried out some superb developments on land sold to them by Savills’ clients. When we work with developers it is highly important that there is a trusting and positive relationship between developer and landowner. Countryside offers this and integrity is a value that has always been there. It is increasingly rare today but it is something that is vital whatever the economic conditions, particularly when the market is tough."

Michael Shaw, Director, Savills
