Legal firm appoints strategic land development partner in Cambridge 

Howes Percival has added strategic land development expert Tim Bacon as a Partner to its Commercial Property team in Cambridge.

Tim specialises in strategic land work and property development, including promotion, option and collaboration agreements and acts for promoters and landowners across the east of England, drawing on over 30 years of experience in all areas of property related matters.

The appointment strengthens Howes Percival’s existing team in the region. Led by Partners Steven Beach and Michaela Henson, alongside Anna Spriggs, who joined the firm last year, and backed by a planning team, the firm believes it has one of the strongest offerings in East Anglia.

Howes Percival Partner Michaela Henson commented, “We are delighted to welcome Tim to the team. Tim brings a number of clients with him and considerable expertise in the strategic land sector where landowners, promoters and developers are seeking to enhance the value of land for their mutual benefit by obtaining planning for residential, commercial or mixed-use development.

“Despite difficult economic conditions, property values in the eastern region continue to be strong and developers are keen to ensure they have a pipeline of development land coming through in future years. This work continues to be a growth area for Howes Percival.

“We are already known for the all-round strength of our commercial property offer in East Anglia and our cradle to grave service for developers, but we are keen to build further on our specialist services by bringing in the best experts. We will continue to invest in our people and in attracting the best property talent to support our clients across the region.”

The Commercial Property team acts for many household names, including some of the country’s largest housebuilders, commercial developers, investors, lenders, business owners, charities, landowners, construction firms and public sector organisations.
