The office is a reflection of our growing presence as a company in the region and is in support to the unique needs of the Thames Valley.

Rob Boughton, CEO of Thakeham, said, “More than ever before, residents of Thames Valley are turning to their local authorities, planners and developers to create thriving new communities. Our new local base will help us to understand and deliver for residents in the area.”

“Like many UK regions, Thames Valley is faced with a diverse range of challenges old and new: The demand for affordable housing is more acute than ever. Climate change and new regulations as a result of the Covid pandemic prompt urgent innovation.”

“An aging population; the search for land; and our responsibility to protect the environment for future generations further sharpens our thinking. Thakeham’s unrivalled passion for community creation places us in a unique position to ease the burden on registered providers in Thames Valley; to help them meet these challenges head on.”

Theresa May, MP said, “Thank you to Thakeham for inviting me to open their new premises. Throughout my political career I have taken a keen interest in planning and am keen to see the development of sustainable homes. I welcome any business that is serious about understanding the unique challenges of the Thames Valley area and is committed to establishing partnerships that help residents with the wide range of challenges we face.”
