Hargreaves Land announces new appointment in Leeds

Leading regeneration and property development specialist Hargreaves Land has expanded its team in Leeds with the appointment of a new development surveyor.

Brady Harrison, who qualified as a chartered surveyor in 2018, has joined the firm to support its development activity across Yorkshire, the North West and Midlands.

Brady has joined Hargreaves Land from Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council where he handled strategic acquisitions, disposals and was heavily involved in the Council’s ongoing land review programme.

In a previous role, he was a senior surveyor at Savills, working on residential land acquisitions and disposals, as well as providing development consultancy services to a range of clients.

At Hargreaves Land, he will work alongside Andrew Johnson and Zoe Shearman on several ongoing projects as well as pursuing new land and development opportunities across the Central Region.

Commenting on his new role, Brady said: “I am very pleased to be joining Hargreaves Land at such an exciting time for the firm. The opportunity to help deliver major development projects such as Unity in Doncaster really appealed to me, and I am looking forward to bringing my experience to this role.”

Hargreaves Land is currently on site at the 250-hectare (618-acre) Unity regeneration scheme in Doncaster, where it is delivering over 2 million sq ft of prime employment space and over 3,100 new homes, in joint-venture partnership with Waystone Developments. Further afield, Hargreaves Land’s key sites include the 390-acre Blindwells scheme in East Lothian where planning consent has been secured for 1,600 new homes and the firm is currently seeking consent for a new town centre to offer a range of new commercial spaces and retail amenities.

Andrew Johnson, head of asset management at Hargreaves Land, said: “I am delighted that Brady has joined us and I am sure he will prove to be an excellent addition to our team. He brings with him a broad range of professional experience and he is rapidly establishing an excellent reputation in the Yorkshire property market.”
