Persimmon Homes

Land expert joins Lancaster team

16 March 2022

Persimmon has appointed a new land and planning manager, confirming the company’s commitment to delivering new homes across Lancashire and Cumbria.

Stuart Binks joins the Lancaster-based team, bringing more than 28 years of experience in sourcing land for development.

Regional land director Andrew Laing said: “Stuart is a terrific addition to our land and planning team and we look forward to reaping the benefits of his vast experience and industry contacts.

“We have set ourselves ambitious targets for providing new homes to communities across Lancashire and Cumbria, and Stuart will play a pivotal role in achieving our aims.”

The Wigan-based 57-year-old joins Persimmon after seven years as strategic land manager with Wainhomes.

He said: “I am focused on sustaining Persimmon’s incredible growth across the region and being part of their successful team.

“We already have an excellent presence throughout the region, delivering new communities in our cities and market towns, and we continue to seek good land opportunities.

“I am looking at a combination of both strategic sites and those that can more immediately be developed into quality new homes for local people.

“Persimmon’s strength lies in the experience and scale of its team. This means we have the ability to quickly understand and assess potential issues affecting development and thereafter using this information to make accurate land valuations which is welcomed by vendors and which allows us to more efficiently progress sites through the planning system and into development.”
