Alan Chitson

Alan joined Grainger as Development Manager for Wellesley in 2011 and is responsible for the management and delivery of the project. Alan has over 25 year’s management experience working with housing developers and has worked on many high profile residential and mixed use schemes.

What are your key responsibilities within this role?

I manage the project on behalf of Grainger. It is my responsibility to ensure we deliver the development on behalf of the MoD. That includes managing the scheme from the planning stages through to the final construction of the new houses and infrastructure, whilst also ensuring we are looking after the vacant garrison where we have public roads and tenants in various buildings.

What part of the new neighbourhood are you most excited about?

The fact we are creating a new vibrant community for thousands of families to live in.

What is your favourite thing about Aldershot?

Aldershot Town Football Club, as a lifelong supporter I am duty bound to say that.

What would be your one recommendation for anyone visiting Wellesley and the surrounding area?

Take a look around the surrounding thousands of hectares of open space that can be enjoyed by all.

What do you think makes Aldershot special?

It’s a great place which offers loads. Its people, the surrounding green landscape, sporting facilities, its connections, the fact that London and the south coast are both less than one hour away. I guess as a local I am slightly bias.
