The Yorkshire-headquartered Caddick Group has made five strategic appointments across its UK divisions, following a successful year advancing significant residential and industrial and logistics projects across Yorkshire and beyond.

The appointments of Land Manager Jordan Martin and Planning Manager Rosie Allsopp to Caddick’s Yorkshire division; development manager Tom Park and land manager Jonny Whiteley in the North West; and development manager James Edwards to Caddick’s London office will help drive continued growth and further strengthen Caddick’s specialist end-to-end planning and development offer. This builds on the success of notable projects progressed throughout 2020 including the landmark 500,000 sq ft Wakefield 515 development, which is currently the largest speculative warehouse under construction in the North.

Based at the business’ Wetherby headquarters, land manager Jordan Martin joins Caddick from LSL Land and New Homes. With a background in residential sales, land and new homes divisions and site identification, Jordan is set to bring this expertise to Caddick’s exciting new single family build-to-rent product and affordable housing projects including Ferrars Road, an £11.5m Sheffield project for Together Housing that sees Caddick Group companies collaborate from site-sourcing through to completion.

With a strong background in planning across the residential; retail; commercial; education; and leisure sectors, Rosie Allsopp also joins Caddick in Yorkshire as Land and Planning Manager. Rosie will work on identifying and securing residential and industrial opportunities to feed Caddick’s strategic land pipeline across the country.

Myles Hartley, managing director at Caddick Developments, said:“It’s fantastic to welcome these new members to the team as we kickstart what is set to be an exciting and successful year for the Caddick Group of companies.

“Yorkshire’s property market continues to be strong, and there remains a need to deliver enough logistics floorspace and quality housing to meet significant demand. With the breadth of services available across the Caddick Group, and an agile end-to-end offer that helps streamline the planning process, Caddick is in a prime position to cater for this need.

“I’m confident that our new members of the team will play an important part in furthering the success of this offer, and help shape future success across the residential and industrial sectors.”

Caddick has also strengthened its credentials in the North West with the appointment of development manager Tom Park and Land Manager Jonny Whiteley. Tom joins the business from Canmoor bringing valuable experience in the regional industrial and logistics market, including work on some of the North West’s Premier Industrial Estates, while Jonny brings extensive insight into the North West housing market and will help to develop Caddick’s single family build-to-rent product.

Development manager James Edwards has also joined Caddick’s London office to play an active role in the business’ living sector work across London and the South East, having previously worked for Capco and Pocket Living.

The Caddick Group of companies now look ahead to a busy year building on recent successes. Caddick Land is working with mixed tenure housing providers to accelerate the delivery of much-needed homes, and is now actively looking for sites that can accommodate upwards of 50 new homes for projects across the Midlands and the North.
