The housebuilding arm of IM Properties, Spitfire, has revealed a plan to construct more than 1,000 homes across the Midlands.

As part of an entire rebrand of the company, Spitfire’s plans include developments in Gloucestershire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. The gross development value of the brand’s pipeline tops £350m.

Ben Leather, managing director at Spitfire, said: “Spitfire has built a name for itself over the last decade for creating design-led, unique, premium and high-specification properties in some of the UK’s most sought-after locations under the Spitfire Bespoke Homes marque.

“With growing demand for our homes, and everchanging market requirements, we want to bring Spitfire’s clear design-led approach to a wider marketplace. Spitfire Homes will bring the best of both worlds, opening up our new product range to a much larger audience, while continuing to develop our signature properties as part of our Bespoke Collection. Both will be evidently Spitfire, carrying our trademark ethos and the principles that we are recognised for.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for our business, and I am excited for what the future holds for Spitfire Homes.”

Spitfire says it is actively seeking land opportunities within a 60-minute drive time from its headquarters in Solihull.

Leather added: “We are immensely proud of the history Spitfire has written in the past 10 years, and these plans mark a significant milestone for the company.”
