Living Space Expands Land Team as it Targets Record Year

Affordable housing specialist Living Space Housing has appointed Joe Gilday as Senior Land Manager to target further site acquisitions in the West Midlands region as it aims for a record year of delivery. 

The Solihull-based business currently has seven live sites across Bedfordshire, Herefordshire, West Midlands, Wiltshire and Worcestershire with a Gross Development Value of more than £90m.  The expansion of its in-house land team is in line with Living Space’s ambitious growth plans to deliver circa 400 homes per annum.

Gilday was previously at Seven Homes, where he was a Land Manager and prior to that, a Development Acquisition Manager at Quinta Group.  With over six years’ industry experience, Joe specialises in assessing a site’s feasibility for development, compiling bids, negotiating deals and guiding purchases through the legal process.

He will work alongside colleagues in the Land and Planning team at Living Space to manage projects, including the planning and design stage, to achieve deliverable planning permissions for clients.

Paul Breen, Managing Director for Living Space said:

“We delighted to be welcoming Joe to the team, with his extensive experience and passion for the role he will play a key part in delivering our growth strategy, specifically in the West Midlands, where there is an acute need for an affordable housing provision.”

Joe Gilday, Senior Land Manager for Living Space said:

“Living Space has quickly developed a strong reputation for delivering high quality, sustainable affordable homes and I’m excited to join the business at this stage of its growth cycle, helping to identify viable sites where we can help build new communities within the region.”
