Lovell Homes Invests In Strengthening Ties With North West Communities

Paul Woby

National housebuild- er Lovell Homes has strengthened its North West team with the pro- motion of Paul Woby to social value manager, a brand-new position created to build links with local communi- ties whilst encouraging new skills and talent to enter the industry.

The dedicated role was created in order to boost the ‘social value’ and positive impact around the firm’s developments and marks a growing trend within the construction indus- try. This will include engaging with schools and colleges, supporting apprentices and trainees and getting involved with communi- ty projects across the region.

Paul, who joined Lovell Homes more than 18 years ago, said: “As builders, we have a huge impact on a town or village when we arrive and so we want that experience to be as

positive as possible for the residents. That’s why this role will be so vital as we not only want to support existing community projects but also help improve the surrounding area by protecting wildlife and improving com- munal facilities.

Lovell Homes North West has 15 develop- ments across the region spanning from The Laureates in Cumbria down to Weston Woods near Nantwich. The newest develop- ment to come to market is Shawbrook Manor, located in Leyland, Lancashire, which is part of the government’s ‘Accredited Construc- tion’ programme.

Lee Sale, managing director at Lovell Homes North West, said: “We’re delighted to an- nounce Paul’s promotion as he’s a brilliant and valued member of the team. With 18 years at Lovell and more than 30 in the con- struction industry he really is the perfect fit for the job.”
