PRIVATE AND NON-PROFIT DEVELOPMENT CONSULTING
Devonshire Consulting was founded in 2004 as a sister company to Devonshire Financial (London) Inc.
Devonshire Consulting provides a full range of services to private and non-profit developers of affordable housing throughout Ontario. Devonshire works with organizations’ staff, board and contracted professionals on planning, design, financing and construction of new affordable rental developments.
Services can be limited or expanded to address the needs of an individual client and specific project. Since 2004, Devonshire has provided consulting services on various affordable housing projects, assisting organizations in securing government grants, construction loans and long-term financing.
Founder and principal, Greg Playford has been active for over 40 years in the development of affordable rental housing across Ontario, having acted as a CMHC Program Manager, a Finance Consultant and a Development Consultant.
Developing new affordable rental housing is a priority in all Canadian communities and the leadership of non-profit developers in building and managing new projects is a national success story. Non-profit developers have been able to create attractive, lasting communities that are accessible to seniors, singles, families and to persons with special needs. By mixing market rent units with affordable and special purpose units, a mixed income community that appeals to all market segments can be created.
