Risk-controlled development

Risk-controlled development

One of the key ways in which we generate income and capital growth is through our risk-controlled development pipeline. Our in-house development team works with stakeholders to obtain valuable planning consents, which we can develop ourselves or sell to crystallise a profit. Our risk-controlled approach means that we will not commit to developments without securing significant pre-lets or pre-sales.

We acquired Grays Shopping Centre in June 2018, as we recognised a significant value-creating opportunity for redevelopment at the site, which is located just 35 minutes from Central London by train.

Working closely with Thurrock Borough Council, we are bringing forward a redevelopment plan that will reduce and repurpose existing retail floorspace, increase public open areas and facilitate an improved pedestrian flow through Grays town centre, as well as providing over 500 new homes. 


C-store development programme

We have an agreement with the Co-op to deliver up to 40 convenience stores ('c-stores') primarily on surplus pub land. We delivered our 25th c-store to the Co-op in the year ending 31 March 2019.
