Diocese appoints Mark Little of Savills as surveyor

The Diocese of East Anglia has appointed Mark Little of Savills Norwich as its Diocesan Surveyor and property advisor for the next five years.

Supported by his experienced team, Mark will be responsible for providing management services for in-hand properties as well as consultancy on other buildings as and when required.

Along with strategic considerations, landlord and tenant advice and guidance on land law and policy, the role also includes assistance with a wide range of other matters including boundaries, repairs, the impact of government legislation and recommendations based on the wider property market and demographics.

A fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers, Mark has been working at Savills Norwich for more than 30 years and at the start of 2020 was appointed head of office.

With a background and degree in agriculture, he has extensive expertise in all matters involving property tenure, providing sound strategic advice for a range of clients including traditional estates, family farms, organisations in the charitable sector and the church. He also advises on valuation, business planning and care of listed buildings.

Commenting on his appointment Mark, who lives in north Norfolk, said: “I am delighted to be taking on this important role. The work promises to be hugely varied – not just focusing on period buildings in need of repair but also taking a look at the diocese’s wider property portfolio including churches, agricultural, commercial and residential holdings.

“The Savills team and I will be providing a full range of services and I look forward to a long standing and successful partnership that will help the Diocese of East Anglia to meet its longer-term strategic objectives.

“Although we have offices around the world, Savills has its roots firmly in East Anglia and has been a part of Norfolk since 1950 – building trusted relationships and creating long standing connections in our local communities.

“Backed by additional resources from our head office in London – including unrivalled research across a range of sectors – our professional and knowledgeable team delivers exceptional client-focused care, advice and assistance. I’m thrilled that we’re now able to offer that level of expertise to the diocese.”
