The developer – which is headquarted in Coventry – has established the division to offer a full affordable housing service, working in partnership with landowners, local authorities and social housing providers across the wider region.
Deeley has delivered 550 affordable homes for a range of organisations and providers in the last four years and is currently working on four schemes in the region.
The group has appointed Anthony Holt (pictured above, second left) to head up the new division, which was launched at an event looking into the provision of affordable and social housing and how the system could be streamlined.

Karl Tupling of Homes England (right), Matt Western, MP for Warwick and Leamington (second right), and Helen Collins, head of housing consultancy at Savills (left), spoke at the event at George House, Deeley’s headquarters, where 60 housing industry figures were in attendance.
Anthony said: “Deeley has developed an expertise in working for developers, local authorities and registered providers and has built up a track record in quality, affordable homes.
“The company’s experience in land, development and construction means we can offer a full service to clients, which will deliver a site, planning consents, construction and a delivered product, or any of those individual components.
“We have worked in partnership with the likes of Orbit Homes, Waterloo Housing, Bromford, Stonewater and are on the Homes England’s delivery partner panel so we have [a] deep understanding of what providers need but, unlike many other construction firms, we also have the other capabilities in-house, which allows us to offer a far wider service.”
