In the past, planners used to approach landowners, but now larger tracts of land often have to be promoted if they are to be considered for future development. Here’s how the system now works…
Local councils will from time to time put out a call for sites that can be included in their development plans. And if you own land in these areas, you’d be missing a trick if you didn’t at least submit your site for consideration – for many landowners, it’s seen as a ‘golden ticket’.
So how can you find out if your land is suitable? The simple answer is to talk to us as we specialise in assessing the suitability of sites across the region. We understand what councils are looking for right now, and have built solid relationships with the house builders and developers that are actively looking for opportunities.
In fact, it’s quite likely that we already know a house builder or land promoter that might be interested in taking your land on to the next stage.
We can also advise on the various necessary assessments such as drainage and proximity to highways and will offer guidance on the best way to fund and get the best results from your application. There are several routes to market (offering various degrees of risk and reward) and we’ll talk you through all your options. And if required, we can introduce you to one of our experienced financial experts who’ll outline what to consider when it comes to tax implications (or allowances!).
But first thing’s first. Right now, all you need to do is get an in touch for an initial discussion. We’ll provide you with some impartial, no-obligation advice and if you choose to take advantage of your council’s current window of opportunity before it closes, we’d be delighted to help.Back to News
