Following planning approval for the first site in Westhoughton just last month, Bernadette Barry joins as Development Manager with over 10 years’ experience in the development and project management of renewable energy projects. Bernadette will work closely with Development Director, Jon England to develop new and sustainable residential schemes in the North West.

John Rush has been appointed as Site Manager for the first Northstone development of 150 homes in Bolton. He brings 15 years’ experience and joins from the Kingswood Homes team who were crowned the Regional Winner of the LABC (Local Authority Building Control) Building Excellence Award 2019.

Meanwhile, Chloe White leaves Peel Media to take up post as Management Accountant at Northstone and is based at the company’s headquarters at MediaCityUK.
