With their detailed knowledge of their areas of operation and through their established land contacts, they can identify and uncover off-market opportunities, promote land for development and work with local communities to bring forward developments within the National Planning Policy framework. This means we can offer partners access to professionally qualified staff with specialist knowledge of the planning system along with the technical ability to carry out detailed due diligence.
On several occasions, thanks to our knowledge of the planning process, our contacts and our willingness to take on board local concerns, we have been able to secure planning consent on sites that had stalled as a result of previously unresolved objections. We take a proactive role in identifying opportunities for affordable housing and mixed tenure for our housing association partners, and we work with them to maximise the development potential.
Our experience in the land market is extensive, covering brownfield and greenfield exception sites, strategic land as well as mixed-use projects, and we also have the skill, tenacity and ability to successfully conclude negotiations.
