Sir Michael Lyons joins Redrow board

Sir Michael Lyons has joined the board of housebuilder Redrow as a non-executive director.

The former BBC chairman recently chaired the Labour-backed Lyons Housing Commission to produce a “roadmap” for ramping up housebuilding in the UK.

He is also chairman of the English Cities Fund, which is a joint venture between the Homes and Communities Agency, Muse Developments and Legal & General Property, created by the government to promote urban regeneration projects across the country.

Its current projects include the £650m New Bailey regeneration project in Salford, Greater Manchester.

Sir Michael was also a non-executive director of Mouchel.  

Redrow chairman Steve Morgan said: “His extensive knowledge and understanding of the housebuilding sector and large scale sustainable regeneration will be extremely useful for the business, as will his many years of experience in local government, running some of the country’s largest local authorities.”
