WBD has advised housebuilder Linden Homes who is set to build hundreds of new homes in North, South and East Yorkshire; on two major land acquisitions. Linden Homes recently announced the new site purchases through its Linden Homes East Yorkshire's land division.

The WBD team, led by Managing Associate Patrick Jackson, advised on two new site purchases including the land at Malton in Ryedale, North Yorkshire; to deliver an additional 140 plots as a continuation to Linden Homes' Copperfields development. The site will deliver a range of two, three and four-bedroom homes.

The team also advised on the purchase of land in East Yorkshire where 225 plots have been acquired to Linden Homes' ongoing development site at Miller's Retreat.

Patrick Jackson of WBD commented:

"It was great to work with the team at Linden Homes on these land acquisitions which will see the development of hundreds of homes in Yorkshire. We are delighted to be able to work with Linden to help deliver high quality developments within the area to meet the housing need and which contribute towards the growth of our region and its economy." 

Matthew Barker, Linden Homes East Yorkshire land and development director, said:

“These new land acquisitions mean great news all round, for us as a developer, the local economy and of course the general house buying public. It has been a pleasure working with Patrick and the rest of the team and we would like to thank WBD for making this happen."
