Development land

Land acquisition for development requires careful consideration. For the project to succeed, you must balance the cost of the acquisition against your anticipated return on investment, all while ensuring certain boxes are ticked. For example:

  • Does the site have planning permission?
  • Is it connected to utilities?
  • Could you face right to light disputes?
  • Is there road access?
  • Would a community infrastructure levy be charged?
  • What about the environmental factors?
  • Is a Section 106 agreement in place?
  • Is the land contaminated?
  • Is a change of use needed?
