We recognise the value real estate can play in contributing to society and with Tim onboard we can make its impact even greater.”

Tim said, “I see real opportunity in the affordable homes space in a similar way to that of high-end property years ago. I am looking forward to being part of the Mitheridge team and joining the Partnership to help grow its developments and ambitions.”
