Premium developer and partnerships housebuilder Stonebond has been appointed to Homes England’s new Delivery Partner Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS).
The Delivery Partner DPS makes it easier for housebuilders to bid on land owned by Homes England and other governing bodies.
Family-owned Stonebond was established over 40 years ago and is privately funded by the Cherry family, who were the founders of Countryside Properties. Having developed a reputation for delivering high-quality new homes predominantly in Essex, the business is now increasingly working in partnership with local authorities, PRS Investors and Registered Providers to deliver mixed-tenure communities.
As part of this evolution, Stonebond has recently opened new divisions in Sevenoaks, St Albans and Solihull, with ambitions to list the business by 2025.
Commenting, Andrew Cornelius, Group Chief Executive of Stonebond, said:
“Our appointment to Homes England’s Delivery Partner DPS is fantastic news for Stonebond. To be appointed alongside major PLC housebuilders demonstrates the confidence in our ability to deliver quality new homes. As a business, we’re increasingly working in partnership with housing providers and local authorities to create new, mixed-tenure communities, and the DPS will provide more opportunities for us to do that. We look forward to working closely with Homes England and other partners going forward.”
