Terra Strategic has expanded its team with the appointment of Sienna Barbour, who has joined the business as a strategic land manager to drive land and development opportunities
Sienna Barbour joins Terra from Alison Land and Research, where she was based for four years. She held the position of Chartered Surveyor, identifying strategic land suitable for residential development.
She is also experienced at development appraisals, marketing sites, putting together landowner consortiums, and negotiating heads of terms.
Barbour obtained First Class Honours in BSC (Hons) Rural Land Management from the Royal Agricultural University. She then qualified as a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) on the planning and development pathway in June last year. Barbour has established relationships with landowners, developers and promoters.
New opportunities through the planning system
James O’Shea, managing director of Terra Strategic said: “Expanding the business with this new appointment will ensure we can take on new opportunities and progress more sites through the planning system.
“Where we differ from other strategic land businesses is our ability to secure the best result and value for each site, whether that be through an open market sale, or via our sister companies; Hayfield, which specialises in homes and Living Space, which delivers affordable housing to Registered Providers.”
Sienna Barbour, strategic land manager for Terra Strategic, added: “Securing a green light for residential development can take years of promotion and planning work.
“Many opportunities also require landowner consortiums to be established to achieve step-by-step collaborative agreement.
“I am delighted to join Terra to identify and assess potential new development sites and proactively manage their promotion, planning and sale.”
