Creating better places where people want to live and work

Who are Ashill Land?

Ashill Land Ltd is dedicated to delivering socially and environmentally responsible developments on our existing sites but will not be used as a vehicle for new projects. Two companies have been launched for new projects, Ashill Commercial Ltd and Ashill Regen Ltd, and although there will be ongoing collaboration and co-operation, the three companies will be separately owned, managed and funded.

Ashill Land Ltd is focused on delivering our current strategic promotion projects, with the existing working in partnership with our landowners and local stakeholders to bring forward landmark developments in London and the Southeast of England. Developments that are sensitive to their surroundings and shaped by community engagement.

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.
