Alantra advised Palatine Private Equity on its investment in Westleigh Home
Established in 1985 as a commercial property developer, Westleigh entered the housing market in 1992. Growing strongly since this time, with turnover in excess of £90 million, today it is a market-leading developer of affordable housing across the Midlands region. In the last five years Westleigh has delivered over 80 affordable schemes for more than 20 Registered Providers.
The Westleigh business model is unique with its strong land-led approach and in-house timber frame production delivering modern contemporary new homes. Along with their Registered Provider partners, the business is working with the Homes and Communities Agency to produce affordable new homes across the Midlands and beyond. With close partnerships and comprehensive in-house expertise, Westleigh is able to identify new sites and then build cost effective affordable housing, ensuring the delivery of sustainable communities and quality homes that meet local needs.
Palatine Private Equity (Gary Tipper and Richard Thomas) has made an investment in the business with Managing Director Chris Beighton moving to Chairman and Business Development Director Ian Jones stepping up to Managing Director.
