Solihull-based Terra Strategic has expanded the team with the appointment of Sienna Barbour, who has joined the rapidly growing property business as a Strategic Land Manager to drive land and development opportunities.
Terra Strategic is an experienced residential land specialist, which enters into agreements with landowners and then pursues, funds and secures an agreeable planning permission. It also has the financial resources to secure land with or without residential planning consent to assist landowners looking for a quick sale process. The company has a national reach, having recently secured residential land in Bedfordshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Warwickshire, The West Midlands, Wiltshire and Worcestershire.
Sienna Barbour joins Terra from Cirencester-based John Alison Land and Research, where she was based for four years. She held the position of Chartered Surveyor, identifying strategic land suitable for residential development. She is also experienced at development appraisals, marketing sites, putting together landowner consortiums, and negotiating heads of terms.
Miss Barbour obtained First Class Honours in BSC (Hons) Rural Land Management from the Royal Agricultural University. She then qualified as a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) on the planning and development pathway in June last year. Sienna has established relationships with landowners, developers and promoters.
James O’Shea, Managing Director of Terra Strategic said: “Expanding the business with this new appointment will ensure we can take on new opportunities and progress more sites through the planning system. Where we differ from other strategic land businesses is our ability to secure the best result and value for each site, whether that be through an open market sale, or via our sister companies; Hayfield, which specialises in luxury homes and Living Space, which delivers affordable housing to Registered Providers.”
Sienna Barbour, Strategic Land Manager for Terra Strategic said: “Securing a green light for residential development can take years of promotion and planning work. Many opportunities also require landowner consortiums to be established to achieve step-by-step collaborative agreement. I am delighted to join Terra to identify and assess potential new development sites and proactively manage their promotion, planning and sale.”
