Mike joins the team with over 30 years of experience in land purchase and property development. Although he started his career in commercial property as an Estates Surveyor for a major UK company dealing with property throughout the UK, he moved to residential property in 1997 as Development Manager for South Cambridgeshire District Council. Following this he worked for several local housing providers and developers dealing with site purchase and development throughout East Anglia.

His role as Land Manager is to source and acquire residential sites with and without planning approval to meet Cambridge and County Developments current land requirements in Cambridgeshire and neighbouring counties.  In addition he will be acquiring sites and development opportunities for our parent company, Cambridge Housing Society.

He studied for the RICS General Practice qualification at the University of Reading and has previously lectured on a part-time basis in applied valuation at what was Anglia Polytechnic later to become Anglia Ruskin. Mike was born in Cambridge and has always lived locally so has a particular interest in the development of the City and surrounding areas.

Outside of work Mike’s interests include architecture, cooking, travel, particularly in southern Italy, and the occasional game of squash.
