Adlington Retirement Living: James Heyworth

Adlington Retirement Living has appointed James Heyworth as land director, responsible for reviewing new sites, new opportunities and appraising their potential. He will report to land and planning director Josh Kite.

Heyworth has more than 27 years’ experience in the development sector, having led land acquisition for projects in the Northwest.

Dr Ed Gladman, managing director of Adlington Retirement Living, said: “We’re a future-facing company with a strong track record. Since 2009, we have launched 14 independent retirement communities across the Northwest, Yorkshire, Wales and the Midlands. We’ve already moved from one new site every two years, to three sites every year. Our ambition is to move to six new sites each year and we’re growing our team as part of our commitment to make that happen.”

Heyworth commented: “I’m excited to move from open market housing to land acquisition for independent retirement communities. The senior living sector is experiencing obvious growth that is set to continue as we address the housing needs of our ageing population.”
