Howkins & Harrison are on the MOVE!

Tuesday, 11 June 2019

On Monday 10th June 2019, the Howkins & Harrison Rural, Planning and Commercial teams based at the firm’s Ashby-de-la-Zouch office moved to new premises.

Having grown significantly over the past ten years to become one of the town and region’s strongest rural partnership businesses, the team is delighted to be spreading its wings to take up residency in the newly refurbished offices at The Old Cottage Hospital.

The new offices have state of the art architectural design features ensuring that the building is as ecologically friendly as possible. Superfast broadband and smart communication facilities mean that the business will have increased connectivity and futureproof digital solutions.

Ian Large, Head of the Howkins & Harrison Rural division is excited by the move. “We have grown exponentially over the past decade to a team of nearly 40 people across 4 of the 9 Howkins & Harrison offices, supporting owners, occupiers, landlords and tenants across Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Derbyshire and beyond. As a business, we have qualified planners, chartered surveyors and rural agents who specialise in sales, rental or auction valuation for land, buildings, machinery, stock or produce, diversification, planning, rural grants or subsidies and so much more. We are thrilled to move the 8 members of the team who are based at Ashby into new offices that we will be proud to meet our visitors at.

Our passion, knowledge and understanding of the countryside, rural businesses, land and property mean that we can get the best results for our clients, whatever their goal. 

Moving into the new offices will enable us to utilise modern technology to further support our clients, whilst improving our environmental impact.”

Howkins & Harrison Rural Department share all of their other office locations with Howkins & Harrison Residential Sales & Lettings. With a total of 7 offices throughout the region, Howkins & Harrison, who acquired local residential sales specialist Andrew Johnson & Company of Ashby in 2017, are the leading country house sales and residential lettings negotiators in their office locations. Additional offices further afield are based in Henley-In-Arden and London.

Any existing clients are welcome to visit the new offices to view the surroundings, whilst anyone who would like to speak to the team about issues they may have with their land, business or planning requirements, are also very welcome to visit for an informal consultation with one of our qualified team members.
