Strategic Land is an asset which has development potential but requires promotion, management and investment in order for the potential to be realised – whether in the short, medium or long term, with the timing often dictated by the continually evolving planning system. The ever-changing planning system means the demands of land promotion is a complex process and requires considerable financial and time commitment. There is rarely a “quick-fix” although opportunities can arise requiring a rapid response eg. a deficit in a five year land-supply emerging.
We regularly assist our clients to select the most appropriate transactional structure and exit strategy to suite their particular requirements, often working with other retained advisors.
The identification of the optimum transactional structure is dependent on correctly identifying the planning opportunities and constraints, selecting the most appropriate development partner and ensuring the financial proposal and deal structure achieves the clients objectives.
