Tilia Homes Northern appoints homebuilder heavyweight David Morris as Land and Planning Director

Warrington-headquartered, Tilia Homes Northern, has appointed David Morris as Land and Planning Director as it seeks to meet ambitious plans for key land acquisition projects over the coming 18 months.

David joins Tilia Homes Northern with 30 years’ experience in housebuilding for the country’s leading developers, including holding director positions at Miller Homes and Persimmon Homes. He also co-founded the strategic land group and affordable housing developer, Bowsall, leading both for almost a decade.

Stuart Craig, Regional Managing Director for Tilia Homes Northern, comments: “David is an invaluable asset to our team here in the North and I’m thrilled he chose to progress his already impressive career in property and construction here at Tilia Homes.

“Having dedicated his career to the progression of the housebuilding industry, his knowledge and experience is unrivalled and brings with him the knowledge and experience in land acquisition and planning processes. With ambitious expansion plans for the coming five plans, I’ve no doubt David will be pivotal in taking Tilia Homes on the next exciting chapter in our journey.”

Tilia Homes is actively seeking new land opportunities for sites of between 75 and 330 units across the M6 and M62 corridors, specifically targeting areas around Preston, Clitheroe, Liverpool and Manchester. Further land opportunities are also being sought in the Yorkshire area.

David Morris adds: “I’m delighted to join Tilia Homes which is a new name in the industry and yet, has secured substantial and impressive financial backing I’m very much looking forward to working with a close-knit team on the delivery of some landmark acquisition deals across the north, in sought-after locations for house hunters and being a part of a growing, talented team committed to making Tilia Homes one of the top five national homebuilders in just a few short years to come.”

The announcement the latest in a series of business milestones over the past 18 months. The homebuilder was acquired by investment house Terra Firm in June 2021 before opening a brand-new office in Birchwood Business Park, home to more than 90 people.

Tilia Homes was created in June 2021 following the acquisition of Kier Living by private equity firm Terra Firma. Its Eastern region operates across Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire, and delivered 450 homes in its last financial year.
