Land Manager Appointment Signals Wain Estates Expansion Strategy

Freya Macdonald has joined Wain Estates as a land manager, as part of our geographic expansion plans. 

Freya, who holds an MSc in Urban Planning from Newcastle University, gained her experience in strategic land promotion whilst working for two national housebuilders and joins Wain Estates from Harrow Estates.

Freya, who grew up in Norfolk, will be responsible for securing strategic land opportunities for future sale on the open market across the East Midlands and South Central regions, from Nottinghamshire, to the north of the M25.

Speaking about Freya’s appointment, Wain Estates Land Promotion managing director, Angela Heaney, said: “Freya’s arrival is key to the geographic expansion of our land promotion business along the eastern corridor of the UK.

“This is an exciting time for the business as we look to introduce the Wain Estates brand into new territories and develop strong relationships with landowners and agents as we continue on our journey to genuine national coverage.

“Freya has a passion for the built environment and a personality entirely in keeping with the culture and values which set Wain apart.”

Freya said: “Wain Estates has a reputation for creating the best outcomes for landowners and I am excited to join such a highly acquisitive business and help grow our brand across the east of England.

“Wain Estates Land Promotion is a truly personable business and we are able to give landowners lots of time and support in securing the best results for their assets. 

“We are also known for our speed and agility in completing land deals which will be particularly appealing to agents and landowners over the coming months and years.”

Wain Estates’ Land Promotion division is already promoting 4,000 residential homes on behalf of third party landowners, and is aspiring to evolve into one of the UK’s leading promoters.

The division specialises in creating value for landowners by promoting their land through the complex planning system using Planning Promotion Agreements, for future sale on the open market, backed by the expertise and private financial resources of the Wain Group.
