More and more landowners are using their land assets to support their businesses and future growth.
Some landowners are in the position of owning land which is suitable for development. Gaining planning permission is an expensive and time consuming business with no guarantee of success.
Land promotion is a collaborative arrangement with both the landowner and land promoter working together to bring land to the market with planning consent for housing, in order to deliver much needed, high quality new homes.
By releasing land for housing, landowners can access valuable capital and also leave a lasting legacy helping support rural and village communities for years to come.
