Who are Ashill Land?
Ashill Land Ltd is focused on delivering our current projects in various locations across the South East of England. The team are working closely with our Local Authority and County level officers and members, local residents and stakeholders on all our projects. This ongoing, genuine consultation is imperative to ensure that the developments we bring forward are well designed, high quality, sustainable, sensitive to their surroundings, and socially and environmentally responsible.
The Ashill team has a collective wealth of experience in the property development sector and an impressive track record of successfully bringing forward high-quality and bespoke residential, mixed-use, and commercial developments in Southern England, particularly in Greater London and the Home Counties. A highly-experienced expert team capable of finding solutions to the most difficult and sensitive land and planning scenarios. Ashill takes a responsive and pro-active approach to every project, with a special focus on community consultation and a commitment to bespoke design.
In addition to owning some of the freehold sites ourselves, we also work in partnership with landowners to promote the land for development.

The Ashill Land Team
Ben joined Ashill in June 2008 from Linden Homes as a Land Manager, and later assumed the role as Managing Director in June 2014. Ben is responsible for the day to day running of the company and oversees all projects.
Further to a career working in house building Steve formed Ashill with Philip Davies on the 1st June 2008. When the group was restructured in June 2014 Steve passed the day-to-day running of the business to the Management Team headed up by Ben Boyce. Steve is still very much involved with the management of the business and project strategy.
From 1982-1990 Philip represented the UK and American Homes Divisions on the PLC board of Alfred McAlpine PLC.
In 1991, Philip left Alfred McAlpine to form Linden with funding from HBoS. The company focussed almost entirely on Brownfield opportunities for residential and mixed use developments.
Corporate acquisitions followed but in 2000 Philip wanted to accelerate growth from all five regions and worked with HBoS to fund a management buy-out. Linden was sold to Galliford Try PLC for £245m in March 2007.
Prior to joining Ashill in 2011 Steve spent ten years as a planning consultant working with developers seeking planning permissions for residential and mixed-use schemes across London and the south East. He has been a member of the Royal Town Planning Institute since 2003.
