Evans launch a new division in the house building sector

The Evans Property Group, a privately owned property investment and development company based in Leeds, has launched a new house building division, Evans Homes Limited.

John Carter has joined the Evans Property Group board as Director (UK) Residential and will be responsible for establishing and growing the business. John has more than 25 years of experience leading teams in the sector and recently spent five years as Managing Director of Bellway Homes, Yorkshire.

The initial focus for the new company is the first Evans Homes housing development in the village of Tockwith, North Yorkshire. The new Regency Place development will provide 119 new units under the Evans Homes brand and will cater for a wide mix of potential homeowners, including 56 four and five-bedroom homes, for private sale, designed specifically for families.

John Carter, said: “This is a very exciting time for the Evans Group. Our new housing division is being set up to develop the opportunities in the sector. We are targeting a significant growth in creating new homes, building on the history, the reputation and experience of The Evans Property Group in the UK. Our plans for the site in Tockwith are going well and I am looking forward to a successful first project working with the new team.’’

Recent recruits have been added to the Evans Homes team. Kevin Tovey has joined as Site Manager, Tockwith responsible for all aspects of the build. Before joining Evans Homes, Kevin worked as a Site Manager for Bellway and in 2018 was named National Site Manager Of The Year at ‘The Bricks’, the prestigious industry awards ceremony. Sharon Wood has taken up the newly created position of Commercial Manager after leaving Berkeley De Veer Limited and is responsible for Quantity Surveying and Procurement.

John Carter added: “This venture is a significant and strategic move into the housebuilding sector. To expand the Evans brand and open-up more opportunities for house buyers in the future, we are looking to buy land with residential development potential that can support our growth plans.’’
