Our business is focused on place making which we deliver through two complementary divisions, Housebuilding and Partnerships. The Housebuilding division develops sites that provide private and affordable housing, on land owned or controlled by the Group. It operates under the Countryside and premium Millgate brands. Our Partnerships division specialises in urban regeneration of public sector land, delivering private and affordable homes by partnering with local authorities and housing associations.
We primarily operate in London, the South East, the North West of England and the West Midlands.
Founded more than 55 years ago, Countryside has earned a reputation for high quality, sound governance and good management practices. These are certificated to internationally recognised standards.
Following a successful initial public offering in February 2016, Countryside is listed on the London Stock Exchange. This has brought new funding into the business and is allowing us to accelerate our growth.
Our reputation for honesty, integrity and delivering value has enabled us to successfully partner with landowners, public agencies and major commercial organisations.
We believe that the Group's reputation is founded on our thorough knowledge of the UK planning system, our integrity in our dealings with private and public sector landowners, our design and delivery of quality housing and our ability to deliver social and physical infrastructure to create a sense of place and community.
We are looking to the future with excitement as we look to expand the business using our substantial financial resources and our experienced management team to create a legacy in which we can take great pride.
