Phil McHugh, West Midlands Managing Director, Countryside Partnerships, commented:
"This joint venture is a significant step forward for Warwickshire, over the next 30 years we can make a major contribution to the area, and we can’t wait to get started on our first schemes. I would like to extend a huge thanks to the team at Charles Russell Speechlys, their expertise and professionalism throughout this process has been invaluable.”
Sarah Wigington, Lead Partner, commented:
“It was a pleasure to have assisted Countryside Partnerships on their latest joint venture. Over the years, their pivotal role in transformative regeneration projects has benefitted many local communities and this newly formed partnership with Warwickshire Property & Development Group will continue to do so at scale across the Warwickshire region.”
