In a seamless transition Darran will take over from incumbent Development Director Lindsey Ashworth when he retires from Peel Land and Property following a 30 year career with the Group in April.
Darran joins the Liverpool Waters team at a pivotal time for the £5 billion regeneration project, with construction recently commencing on Peel’s PRS apartment block for Regenda, Plaza 1821, along with Your Housing Group’s Hive City Docks and Moda Living’s The Lexington, which will collectively deliver 1000 apartments to Princes Dock over the next two years.
Darran brings over 28 years’ experience to the role including most recently establishing development consultancy Petre Properties which provided strategic advice for the delivery of residential and mixed use projects. Prior to this he was Managing Director of Engine of the North, Cheshire East Council’s wholly owned development company, formed to undertake development of the Council’s £400m assets to bring forward new housing, growth, regeneration and capital receipts.
Darran has also spent 15 years as Development Director at Muse Developments responsible for numerous schemes throughout the North West including St Pauls Square, Liverpool on behalf of English Cities Fund.
