Q2 Market Update: Strong Demand and Anticipated Growth in the Land Market

Welcome to the Q2 market update from Thomas Mae Land & Planning! As a leading provider of land and development consultancy services, we are excited to share the latest insights on the current state of the land market. In this update, we will focus on the strong demand for consented sites, the anticipated growth in the land market over the next six months, and the motivations of landowners. Additionally, we encourage landowners and housebuilders to take action and get in touch with us to capitalise on the opportunities available.

Demand for Consented Sites

The demand for consented sites in the land market remains incredibly strong. We have also witnessed a significant appetite from development funders who are eager to support new sites. Whether it’s residential, commercial, or mixed-use developments, the demand we are experiencing ranges from single plots to hundreds of units, albeit with a particular emphasis on a wide range of 20 to 80 units. This diversity in demand allows us to cater to a variety of projects and ensures that there is ample scope for both small and large-scale developments.

Anticipated Growth in the Land Market

Looking ahead, we anticipate a busy and dynamic six months in the land market. Many sellers held back during the first few months of the year as they carefully weighed up their options. However, based on our recent discussions, it is clear that many landowners are now gearing up to sell. This increased motivation to sell presents a prime opportunity for both landowners and housebuilders to capitalise on the current market conditions.

Motivations of Landowners

The motivations of landowners in the current market vary considerably. Some may be looking to release equity from their sites, while others may have reached a stage where they are ready to move on from a particular project. Irrespective of the motivation, our team is well-equipped to understand and address the unique needs of each landowner. We pride ourselves on delivering tailored solutions that maximise value and achieve their desired outcomes.

Take Action

Call to Landowners and Housebuilders: If you are a landowner who is considering selling or exploring the development potential of your land, please get in touch with us. Our team of experts are ready to provide you with a comprehensive assessment of your land and guide you through the process of achieving your objectives.

Similarly, housebuilders looking for suitable land opportunities, please make sure your land requirements are on our radar.


In conclusion, the Q2 market update highlights the continued strong demand for consented sites, an anticipated busy period in the land market, and the motivations of landowners gearing up to sell.  At Thomas Mae Land & Planning, we are excited about the opportunities that are coming forwards and are committed to assisting both landowners and housebuilders in achieving their goals.
