Havering Council has appointed a new development chief to lead on its ambitious regeneration plans for the borough.

Chris Hilton is the new assistant director for development. As the third largest borough in London, of which almost half is green space, preserving the character of the unique borough will be one of his key priorities.

He said: “Havering is such an exciting place to be. With the arrival of Crossrail, the potential to attract major new investment is huge. But high quality design is very important. We need to create great places where people will aspire to live, and of which local people can be proud. That means well designed buildings and public spaces, and affordable housing for local people, and I’m incredibly excited to be leading this important area of work.”

Chris is a chartered surveyor with extensive experience in property development and regeneration and led Maidenhead’s regeneration programme of more than 3,000 homes.
