Billy Poulter's Expertise

 

Billy Poulter

Billy is a solicitor in the Real Estate sector with a particular focus on residential development. Billy has advised public sector, private sector and Registered Provider clients on acquisitions and sales of land for development purposes.     

Billy has particular experience in acting on development sites with a collaboration between the public and private sector.

Billy’s relevant experience includes advising:

  • Homes England on disposals of land to private developers for residential development via Homes England’s residential building lease model. Recent schemes include:
    • Kirkleatham Lane, Redcar and Cleveland;
    • D’urton Lane, Preston;
    • Cottam Hall, Preston.

From working at a previous firm, Billy has a depth of experience in working on a number of Homes England schemes so understands the drivers and commitments of both Homes England and private sector developers. He is also used to working on sites where there is a mix of tenures including affordable housing, private/market housing and PRS housing, so is familiar with dealing with various parties on the same site.  

  • Homes England on its Local Authority Accelerated Construction programme. This is a Homes England scheme to fund local authority owned sites in order to speed up the construction of homes in England. Billy had a senior role in advising Homes England on a number of sites across the country and also led and managed a team internally in the roll out of the project.
  • Guinness Developments Limited on the acquisition of a site at Hunslet Road, Leeds (near Leeds Docks and the Royal Armouries museum) for delivery of a mixed use scheme. This was a landmark scheme for Guinness as it will be the largest development in its history, which should provide around 928 homes, 35% of which are intending to be affordable. With the inclusion of commercial space, the development will also create a thriving community for residents and local people.
  • Rowlinson Construction, a developer based in Manchester on the residential development of a former Stagecoach bus depot at Bowes Street, Moss Side, Manchester. Billy took this project over from a partner to deal with a variation of the original development agreement and subsequent phased disposals from the freehold owner, Manchester City Council, to various private sector and Registered Provider purchasers.
  • A number of Registered Providers on acquisition of land and/or multiple units from private developers under various development models. Billy’s experience here includes drafting and advising on golden brick agreements, turnkey development agreements, other forms of development agreement and land contracts.
