Tony Pidgley, Chairman of Berkeley Group, received New Londoner of the Year Award for his substantial contribution to the capital, his companies having been responsible for the construction of some 40,000 homes in London over the last two decades.
New Londoner, Tony Pidgley, Chairman of Berkeley Group commented: “I am very humbled and honoured to receive this magnificent award. Our biggest challenge in London is undoubtedly housing. There’s never one answer. Politicians, planners, and housebuilders must work together in a spirit additionality and affordability which London desperately needs, and which I know the new Mayor supports” He added “I passionately believe that homebuilding can be a force for good and make society a better place. There’s a lot for our city and industry to celebrate and be proud of. Now we must find a way of providing everybody with an affordable home and creating wonderful and interesting places, while generating jobs and growth.”
