Parker’s of Leicester first started out in business over 100 years ago when founder Billy Parker opened his first
butcher’s shop, W&J Parker, in Leicester. The family then moved into farming and farms over 12,000 acres
in Leicestershire and other counties.
Parker’s historically sold land to house-builders, but in 2016, Parker Strategic Land was formed to help shape the direction of future developments and meet the needs of local communities by creating places to be proud of.
The family company has a track record in bringing forward developments across Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Northamptonshire, Norfolk and Essex. Parker Strategic Land work as a master developer, in partnership with local stakeholders to create quality schemes.
