Keepmoat aims to deliver over 500 new homes a year in the South of England from 2019

Keepmoat will aim to deliver over 500 new homes a year in the South of England from 2019, its new managing director has revealed.

Mike Dempsey has been named the group’s managing director for its new-build division in the South of England. He joined from London-based housing association Catalyst Housing, where he was responsible for delivering around 900 homes a year as the group’s head of development.

Mr Dempsey said there was huge potential for Keepmoat growth in the region.

Of the 900 homes a year he was responsible for at Catalyst Housing, a third were for private sale, a market Mr Dempsey said the South was “crying out for”.

Keepmoat has started work on its first homes for private sale in the region, after securing land in Peterborough, Cambridge and Waltham Abbey.

Mr Dempsey said the team was looking to secure more sites in the South to grow the business further.

Keepmoat new-build division managing director Peter Hindley said the appointment of Mr Dempsey was a “huge milestone” for the company.

“Having recently announced our plans to begin the construction of our first homes in Scotland, this appointment gives us national reach from Land’s End to John O’Groats,” he said.

Keepmoat has 22 regional offices across the UK and employs around 2,900 people.

In February, Keepmoat appointed former Galliford try regional director Paul Munro as its new-build director in the South-west.
