Tony Lawton has been appointed Managing Director of Lincolnshire-based residential and commercial developer, Stirlin Developments.
Formerly Managing Director of Lindum Homes, Tony Lawton has been involved in property development in Lincolnshire, in both public and private sectors, for more than 30 years.
Founded in 2007, Stirlin constructs high specification commercial and residential properties in the Lincolnshire area.
Encompassing residential developer, Homes by Stirlin, Stirlin Developments forms a major element of Stirlin Group, responsible for the organisation’s commercial and residential divisions.
Stirlin’s commercial developments include Leafbridge in North Hykeham, Riverside Enterprise Park in Saxilby, Kirk’s Yard in Branston and Stirlin Place in Gainsborough.
In partnership with Castle Square Developments, Stirlin is also creating a new 20 acre commercial development in Saxilby, named Enterprise West Lindsey. Construction is due to commence in 2021.
Homes by Stirlin is on course to complete its largest residential scheme to date at the end of this year: Lodge Lane in Nettleham is a 44 home development of three to five bedroom homes designed by local RIBA winning architects.
Upon joining Stirlin in 2019, Tony Lawton has been responsible for many of the final stages of this high quality development, where the final plot was sold in the last month.
Homes by Stirlin has also recently completed a six house scheme in Saxilby, named Parman Court which is receiving strong interest in the last available homes.
As Managing Director of Stirlin Developments, Mr Lawton said he’s committed to building on the company’s strong local reputation for well designed, well received, well built developments:
“I am delighted to have been given this opportunity to lead the continued growth and expansion of what is already a well known and respected local commercial and residential development company. I’m very excited about the future for the company and the chance to help create more quality developments for people to live and work.
“Stirlin has built a strong reputation over the years, which has been earned through the team’s commitment to building houses and business developments to the highest of standards.
“As Managing Director of Stirlin Developments, I hope to build on this reputation as we grow our business and support the growth of businesses and communities within this thriving region.
“I was raised in Lincolnshire and I’ve worked here all my life, so I take great pride in contributing, in my own small way, to making this a better place to live and work. For me, seeing neighbourhoods and business premises which I’ve helped to build being occupied and enjoyed is the best part of the job.
“I’ve joined Stirlin at a very exciting point in its 14 year history; the company is expanding, we’re creating new jobs and delivering some really impressive projects. We have big plans for the future and I’m proud to be leading this important part of Stirlin Group, as we explore new opportunities for long term, sustained and managed growth. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in, making a difference and leading this modern, dynamic team.”
Managing Director of parent company, Stirlin Group, James Kirby said: “Tony has done a fantastic job since he joined our residential division last year and he has a great deal of local experience in the property sector which makes him an excellent leader. Since he joined, Homes by Stirlin has grown significantly and I know he’ll bring the same qualities to his new role as MD of Stirlin Developments. We have some brilliant plans in the pipeline which will need his knowledge, expertise and his passion for quality.
“With Tony taking on my role at Stirlin, I know the business is in safe hands and I’m looking forward to working with him as our organisation grows.”
As part of the continued growth of Stirlin, the team is also hoping to expand in the near future, with the creation of new jobs, including a new vacancy for a qualified and experienced quantity surveyor.
