Harworth Group plc is a leading land regeneration and property investment specialist which owns, manages and develops c.21,500 acres over 120 sites across the North of England and the Midlands, with a Gross Asset Value of over £500 million.
Our flagship developments, including Waverley in Rotherham and Logistics North in Bolton, are leading examples of industrial regeneration and are at the forefront of the UK’s economic recovery. It has a Gross Asset Value close to £500 million and a low Loan to Value ratio of less than 15%.
Our people are every bit as important as our land. We have a highly experienced team of property professionals including surveyors, planners, engineers and project managers, as well as finance, legal, communications and support staff.
Our expertise is founded on the breadth and depth of our experience in bringing forward challenging brownfield sites for redevelopment.
We have a team of around 67 dedicated professionals, ranging from surveyors to engineers, planners to project managers. We carefully select the contractors we work with to ensure their aims, aspirations and values match up with our own in bringing developments to the market.
We transform brownfield sites, often with legacy issues requiring detailed remediation, into high quality residential, commercial and low-carbon developments that help to regenerate former industrial communities.
We understand the land we work with, undertaking comprehensive due diligence in areas such as title, constraints, surveys and engineering reports prior to undertaking remediation. We also work effectively with local planning authorities to ensure the sites receive necessary consents, making sure Section 106 agreements and design codes (where applicable) are practical and necessary.
The results are often spectacular. Waverley for example has emerged as Yorkshire’s largest mixed-use development after two decades of remediating the sites 740 acres. Formerly the Orgreave coking works and an open surface mine (pictured left), it is now home to over 850 completed homes and 1.5m sq. ft of built commercial space at the world-renowned Advanced Manufacturing Park and is viewed as a leading example of brownfield regeneration.
