Business Update From Catesby Estates

We hope you and your family are keeping safe and well in these unprecedented times.

As each day passes it becomes ever more clear that Covid-19 is having a massive and long lasting impact on British businesses and the wider community.  The entire land and development sector is affected.

The Catesby business model does not rely on monthly income as many do.  This combined with the backing of our parent company Urban&Civic  plc, which has a strong balance sheet and a high level of undrawn facilities, the bulk of which are Government backed, means we are in a stronger position than most.

We are closely monitoring the developments of the pandemic and we are following Government advice, which is updated daily.  Our priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, landowners, consultants and the wider general public.

We have implemented a number of protocols across the business to safeguard our employees and landowners along with ensuring continuity of business operations including implementing flexible working practices, and use of video conferencing facilities for meetings. 

The head office number: 01926 836910, Basingstoke office number: 01256 637914, and general office email:, continue to be manned for general enquiries.   Alternatively, please contact individuals directly on their mobiles or via email. Catesby team details can be found at:

We will be working constructively and positively with the Local Planning Authorities through the challenging months ahead to ensure that as many planning applications as possible are determined.  No one can foresee how long this crisis will continue; however, we are determined to come through this and emerge stronger and well placed to bring land to the market for development to help lead Britain’s economic recovery.

Take care, stay safe.
