Case studies

A selection of recent deals within our portfolio

Our sites across the UK

Our portfolio is geographically expansive from sites in the Isle of Wight to the South, Great Yarmouth to the East and Liverpool and Teeside to the North. Our interactive map shows the location of all assets with those disposed of in red and those retained in blue. Please zoom out of the map to see our portfolio UK wide. 

Over the next five years we have an exit strategy to dispose of all but our ground rent assets, located outside of London and the Thames Valley, to enable us to focus on new investments within Reading where our team holds considerable experience. In addition, our long term goal is to reduce our carbon footprint and the reduction in time spent travelling to sites will deliver greater efficiency and reduced costs.

As a result of the above we are reviewing new investments within Reading and the Thames Valley as they become available, to ascertain whether they fit our investment criteria.
