Wed 30 August 2023

Andrew Granger & Co’s rural team are thrilled to have expanded their department and area of work across the East Midlands following an appointment by new client, the Peterborough Diocesan Board of Finance.

Since September 2022 the department have managed the Peterborough Diocesan Glebe Estate which includes the management of 161 tenancies – a real mix of complete farms, and land let on a variety of tenancy agreements. The team carries out the day-to-day management of the Estate which includes handling of tenancy agreements, planning and development work, and general estate maintenance.

The Estate extends to approximately 4,200 acres which is spread across Northamptonshire, Rutland, and the Peterborough area.

On behalf of the client the rural team have already successfully re-let land with increased rents, marketed parcels of land for sale - achieving prices above the guide and completed negotiations for compensation regarding land access by outside companies.

The new appointment follows Andrew Granger & Co’s years of working on behalf of the Leicester Diocesan Glebe Estate, individual private landowners and farmers that can also involve the management of commercial property.

Head of Rural, Rupert Harrison, commented “We were delighted to be appointed as managing agents for the Peterborough Diocesan Glebe Estate – which was a real team effort in securing the tender. 

“We have significant experience of managing this type of estate and it’s a pleasure to be able to help to make it work as well as it can for the client.”

Andrew Granger & Co’s rural work can often take them further than the East Midlands, with recent valuations including Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, and Lincolnshire.
