A new Senior Planning and Development Director has been appointed at Bloor Homes.

Spencer Claye has joined the privately-owned housebuilder after 16 years with property development company Gallagher Estates.

Based at the developer’s Tamworth office, Spencer will be responsible for the successful delivery of strategic sites across the housebuilder’s Midlands, North West and Western regions.

The 44-year-old father of two started his career in the planning department at Lichfield District Council before joining Warwick-based Gallagher Estates, where he fulfilled the roles of Planning Director and Projects Director.

During his time with Gallagher, Spencer was responsible for promoting strategic development opportunities across the country, including major urban regeneration schemes and other large scale projects.

He said Bloor Homes’ reputation for quality and its commitment to delivering strategic sites were the main factors in his decision to join the company.

Spencer, who lives in Aldridge and counts watching sport among his hobbies, said: “Bloor Homes is renowned for the quality of its product, both in terms of build and design, and in contrast to most other housebuilders it still maintains a steady supply of land through strategic sites.

“I have been extremely impressed by the professionalism that exists within the company, and I’m looking forward to using my experience to deliver the land and planning consents we need to increase our rate of housebuilding and move the business forward.”

Gary Crisp, Bloor Homes Divisional Chairman, said: “Spencer has an impressive track record of delivering strategic sites for development and we are delighted to welcome him to the team.

 “We are committed to significantly increasing the delivery of much-needed new homes across our regions in the coming years, and Spencer’s expertise will be crucial in helping us to achieve this.”
