A Midlands-based land, development, property agency and consultancy has appointed a new director as part of plans to expand its operations with a new rural property consultancy team.

Will Young joins Newton LDP Ltd with more than 20 years’ experience in providing rural, development and agency services to landowners and farmers across the country.

His appointment will add a new arm to the company as it expands its existing offering with additional services to farmers, land and property owners.

The son of a farmer, Will brings with him a strong agricultural background and still retains a key role within the family business.

He joins from Fisher German where he spent the last 20 years, building a strong reputation and an extensive client base.

Will said: “I am really excited about the ambition and growth prospects at Newton and look forward to getting going.

“Newton is a company which offers a diverse range of experience and expertise from a highly-respected team, which is something I absolutely wanted to be a part of.

“My involvement in property and the countryside has been nurtured from an early age, having always been involved in agriculture through the family farm on the urban fringe.

“It is this grounding and recognition of the complexity of the rural landscape – separating assets, lifestyle, and emotion, from capital and income generation – that has left me well-placed to understand those issues and most importantly to address both the opportunities and challenges they present, to the benefit of clients.”

Newton LDP Ltd, which is based at Stockton House in Warwickshire but operates nationally, was established in July 2021 by experienced operators Richard Foxon and Piers Beeton.

Richard Foxon, Managing Director of Newton LDP Ltd, said: “I have known Will for the past 15 years and am delighted that he has joined Newton to diversify and complement our service offering as we continue our growth plans.

“Will is a well-known and respected operator within the rural property sector and brings with him a wealth of knowledge, experience and contacts to complement those already offered by Newton.

“His hard-working nature, ambition and pursuit of happiness for his clients fits perfectly with our own ethos as a business, and we know he will be a terrific fit for us and our growing client base.

“We look forward to seeing Will thrive in his new role.”
