Tilia Homes has been appointed to Homes England’s new Delivery Partner Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS), providing the housebuilder with easy access to land opportunities from one of the largest vendors of residential sites.
The new DPS will be the main route for land disposal for the Government’s housing delivery agency and will support Tilia’s land acquisition programme at a time of significant growth for the company. Other public bodies can also use the DPS, broadening member housebuilders’ exposure to potential projects.
David Bridges, CEO of Tilia Homes, comments; “Homes England is transforming the way it disposes of land and being appointed as a member of the new DPS means we will have quick and easy access to high-quality, sustainable sites across our four operating regions.
“Since being acquired by Terra Firma in June this year, the new Tilia business has been focused on future growth plans and land will be the lifeblood of that expansion programme. Initiatives such as the DPS will be an important strand of our land buying programme as we build a strong pipeline of sites to fuel our growth.”
Members of the DPS are required to demonstrate a track record in all stages of residential development including planning, supply chain management, design and construction and sales and marketing. Tilia Homes application was successful in both the small sites (between 20 and 70 homes) and large sites (over 70 homes) categories.
