Rangeford Villages Appoints New Land and Planning Director

12/09/2022 General, Corporate



Rangeford Villages, the modern retirement village specialist, has appointed Doug Jones as Land and Planning Director to its management team.

Doug has over 30 years’ experience in the later living sector, where he specialised in identifying, acquiring, and obtaining planning consent for later living schemes, working with key sector players such as Pegasus, Churchill, and Castleoak Care Development. During this time, Doug acquired more than 80 sites with a combined gross development value (GDV) of £1 billion.

Speaking about his new role, Doug commented: “I am very much looking forward to joining Rangeford and to integrating with the existing management team that is currently delivering retirement developments at Wadswick Green in Wiltshire, Mickle Hill in North Yorkshire, and Siddington Park in the Cotswolds. I am pleased to have been given this opportunity to help Rangeford grow its already impressive portfolio.”

Doug joins Rangeford’s expanding land division where he will report to the newly appointed Managing Director for Rangeford Developments, Ryan Fairbairn. Doug’s previous experience will prove valuable in his new role, where he will be responsible for identifying, negotiating, and purchasing new land, as well as ensuring all the necessary planning processes and approvals are in place.

Howard Nankivell, Chief Executive said; “Rangeford’s ability to attract such an experienced person as Doug, is testament to its vision, as it continues with its ambitious development plans in the UK retirement market. Doug will be a great asset to the management team, his experience in the sector is proven. He will play a key role in supporting the group’s exciting expansion plans, at Rangeford’s time of rapid growth in the later living sector.”

Rangeford continues to work in partnership with Octopus Healthcare, a leading UK healthcare property investor, developer, and manager of healthcare properties, focused on delivering exceptional healthcare facilities across the UK.
