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 utilise the appropriate experience, market knowledge and expertise 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 by optimising the deal structure.

Land Consult regularly deal with land for residential & mixed-use developments. Every year we carry out dozens of sales and acquisitions of sites from short term consented land to long term strategic opportunities.  We 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 conditional contracts, or promotion agreements or options to purchase.

Over the last 5 years, we have been directly involved with in excess of £1 billion pounds worth of residential development land sales and acquisitions – sufficient land for more than 9,000 dwellings. Land Consult are market facing and totally client focussed. Our principal ethos is to take Client instructions and ensure the optimum strategy is employed to fulfil or exceed clients expectations.
