Expansion-seeking Adderstone adds to headcount

Newcastle-based affordable house builder Adderstone Living has made a series of appointments to support business growth beyond its traditional North East heartland.

Debbie Hope joins as director of new business with a brief to develop the company’s range of affordable properties for social housing providers in Yorkshire over the next 18 months, including establishing a new regional office.

She brings more than 12 years’ experience in affordable housing development within the public sector to the role, including spells with Housing 21 and Stoke-on-Trent City Council, and will work closely with Adderstone’s directors on identifying and delivering new opportunities.

Also appointed are senior planner Emma Moon, senior estimator Neil Fitzpatrick, and technical coordinator Jordan Dixon, who will all be based at The Fleming in Jesmond and add further technical expertise and skills.

Currently employing 30 people, Adderstone Living is looking to meet strong demand from local authorities and housing associations for its ‘land-led’ solutions. These include sourcing suitable land, scheme design and securing planning permission to enable quality homes to be delivered.

Director Stephen McCoy said a strong commercial performance is being driven by securing new business and development land and targeting expansion into Yorkshire next year, where there is a lot of demand for good quality affordable housing, will deliver further growth.

“Our strength lies in our people and Debbie, Emma, Neil and Jordan, whose values align with those of the business, will be terrific additions to the team,” he said.

“The next chapter of success is already being written and we will only go from strength-to-strength in 2024 on the back of our investment in additional skills and a commitment to deliver high standards of service and product excellence. It’s going to be a terrific year to come.”

Adderstone Living is the affordable housebuilding arm of North East property company Adderstone Group, which recently sold the Rivergreen Centre in Durham for £11m.

The company is headed up by directors Stephen McCoy and Peter Galbraith, both of whom have a wealth of expertise in managing some of the largest affordable housing partnerships in the region.
