Land Promotion Testimonials

Strategic land is often greenfield and located close to sustainable towns and villages with good transport links and local facilities. Often the land doesn’t have planning permission but has the strategic potential for future development.  

A strategic land promoter like Catesby Estates uses its in-house expertise and financial resources to fund the land promotion through the planning system. Whether your land is part of a family farm, large estate or other land site, Catesby Estates will work with you to maximise the value of our land.

At no cost to the landowner Catesby Estates uses its in-house expertise and financial resources to fund the land promotion.  We obtain planning permission and then market the site to housebuilders securing the highest possible financial return for the landowner.  

As your strategic land promoter we would work with you to bring forward your land under either a promotion agreement, option agreement or an unconditional purchase to suit your requirements as the landowner.

Catesby Estates worked with us on a land site delivering 450 new homes and a retail park in Bude, Cornwall. Their team of in-house professionals navigated the complicated planning process on our behalf keeping us in the loop throughout all stages of the land promotion. We would have no hesitation in recommending Catesby Estates to other landowners who are looking to capitalise on the development potential in their land.

We have worked with Catesby Estates across a number of land promotion sites, and have been impressed by their attention to detail and ability to bring forward well designed and sustainable residential development through the planning system.
Their dedicated in-house land, planning and technical teams are skilled at implementing a bespoke strategy for each site, ensuring our clients have the best opportunity of maximising value from their land.  We have found Catesby to be diligent, fair and honest and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with them.

We are working very closely with Catesby Estates on this exciting new residential development taking shape at Myton Green. We have been impressed by their attention to detail and ability to bring forward this site with early investment in high quality infrastructure delivery and public realm works.
This sympathetic and well-designed development will be a welcome addition to helping boost the supply of much needed housing in the District, and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with them.

We work closely with Catesby Estates who are delivering the infrastructure for 735 homes at our site in Myton Green, Warwick.  We have been impressed with their attention to detail; from working with Warwickshire District Council to discharge planning conditions and agree Reserved Matters for infrastructure and public realm works, to the appointment of a preferred contractor.
We have regular progress meetings, and their team of in-house land, planning and technical professionals are a pleasure to work with.

Europa Way Consortium Myton Green, Off Europa Way, Warwick

Catesby Estates have worked meticulously on our behalf to obtain planning permission for a development of 65 homes on land at Haughley, Suffolk.
The professional team consulted fully with Haughley parishioners at open days and Parish Council meetings and the early ideas were subsequently amended to address local concerns. They have been complimented on this friendly approach.
Catesby then successfully negotiated the complicated planning application process resulting in approval by Mid Suffolk District Council. We have been kept fully informed throughout.
We would thoroughly recommend Catesby Estates to any other owners who are seeking a promoter for their land development.

Wanting to build on our previous successes at the Dorridge View and Dorridge Gate developments in Solihull, we worked closely with Catesby Estates to purchase the 115 unit development opportunity at Kenilworth Road, Balsall Common , following the grant of outline planning consent.
This is a fantastic site for Crest Nicholson and it was a pleasure to work with Catesby Estates whilst securing the site. The purchase has enabled us to expand our operations in a very desirable area of Solihull whilst allowing us to create a sympathetic design-led development of 115 houses and apartments.
Catesby Estates brought to the market a site that was technically considered and deliverable, and following a very quick reserved matters consent we are now operational, with sales looking positive following the launch of the show homes.  I am confident this will be a very successful site for Crest Nicholson and look forward to being able to conclude another deal with Catesby Estates in the future.
