Redrow has appointed Kevin Parker as its new group master planning director.

Reporting to Will Heath, Redrow’s development director and chairman of Harrow Estates, Parker (pictured) was previously a director at design consultancy Barton Wilmore.

He replaces Tim Peach, who left Redrow in May last year to become group design director at Bloor Homes.

John Tutte, Redrow’s chief executive, said Parker’s expertise in urban regeneration and master planning would “play a major role in allowing us to continue creating great places to live…and helping to combat the country’s housing shortage”.

Earlier this week Redrow announced it was planning to launch a new division in the Thames Valley next year to exploit growth opportunities in outer London and the Home Counties.
