Strategic landbank

Strategic land is land which does not have planning consent. It tends to be in proximity to existing development and has a strong relationship to the services and facilities of the settlement, so that its delivery would result in a sustainable form of development. In addition, the land is in areas where there is a strong demand for housing.

We identify and secure an interest in land in these targeted locations, via an agreement to purchase or sell on the open market at a future date, which is then triggered on the receipt of an implementable planning consent.

Our dedicated strategic land team, promote the existing strategic land portfolio through the development plan process to secure allocations and consents.

The land currently does not benefit from a planning consent although it may have been allocated for residential development in the relevant local plan.
