Welcome to Land Consult

Land Consult LLP are market facing development land agents owned and run by Mark Budden and James Shelley. With more than 35 years’ collective experience of dealing with development land in the south of England and beyond, we hold the appropriate professional planning and surveying qualifications and have been responsible for hundreds of millions of pounds worth of land transactions on behalf of landowner clients, public sector clients and developer clients as well as Registered Charities and corporate occupiers.

Land for residential or commercial development is a scarce and valuable resource in Southern England. It is essential to bring market knowledge and professional expertise to bear when dealing with land.

The complexity of the development process, from site identification to scheme realisation, has increased dramatically in recent years. Securing valuable planning consents for development land is time consuming, expensive, competitive (with other sites) and requires a high level of skill and experience given the ever changing planning system.

It is now, more than ever before, vital to bring the appropriate experience, market knowledge and expertise to bear if land assets are to be maximised.

A thorough understanding of the planning policy framework and development control process, development appraisal, valuation, market trends, construction costs and developer requirements, are all essential if the right decisions are to be made to maximise land value.

Land Consult regularly deal with land for residential & mixed use developments. Every year we carryout sales and acquisitions of sites from short term consented land to long term strategic options / promotional agreements; deliver development consultancy advice to both public & private sector Clients to optimise value as well as conduct hundreds of millions of pounds worth of development appraisals and price determinations of land held under options.

Over the last 4 years, we have been directly involved with in excess of £500 million worth of residential development land sales and acquisitions – sufficient land for more than 5,500 dwellings.

If you are a landowner with land / property asset that has (re)development potential and require comprehensive, professional & commercial advice to assist with your evaluation of the available options, we can help.
