Beever & Struthers helps Longhurst go to market for funds to build 1,700 homes

MANCHESTER-BASED firm Beever & Struthers has helped its affordable homes client Longhurst Group secure a £225m fundraising through the bonds market.

The fundraising was undertaken to help the business build more than 1,700 affordable homes. Some 1,300 of these Midlands-based properties will be for rent and the remainder will be low-cost homes offered on a part-buy, part-rent basis.

Beevers served as Longhurst’s reporting accountant, providing assurance on the financials for its prospectus.

Rob Griffiths, group executive director of financial services at Longhurst, said: “As public funding for affordable housing has reduced, housing providers need to look to alternative funding streams. Approaching the bonds market was the best way of raising the capital we needed to restructure our existing funding and, working closely with our banking partners and advisors, to create the facilities to make a real dent in the region’s housing shortfall.

“The money is going to make a tremendous difference to so many people.”
