Countryside is the UK’s leading mixed-tenure developer specialising in building communities
In March 2021, we retained our 5 Star Rating by the Home Builders Federation following the latest home building industry’s Customer Satisfaction Survey. In addition, we have also been awarded both the ‘Gold Award’ and ‘Outstanding Achievement’ award from In-House for customer satisfaction throughout 2020.
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 the regeneration of public sector land, delivering private and affordable homes by partnering with local authorities and housing associations.
Modern Methods of Construction
Underpinning the delivery of our product, we have invested in expanding the growth of MMC. Off-site construction is integral to meeting our growth plans and securing our supply chain for the future. We use off-site timber frame construction on a substantial proportion of our output and with two factories currently operating, we have progressed plans for our third factory to open in 2021.
Countryside delivered 4,053 homes in the twelve months to September 2020, with a mix of private for sale, PRS and affordable homes. The Group has a strong balance sheet with new framework agreements signed during 2020 which, along with a record forward order book, up 23% to £1,432m, underpin the mixed-tenure delivery model focused on delivering quality homes and sector leading growth. It was listed on the London Stock Exchange in February 2016 as a constituent of the FTSE 250.
