Catesby Estates plc are founder members of the Land Promoters and Developers Federation.
We joined people from across the industry for a night of networking accompanied by good food and drink at The Alchemist, Birmingham. Our Chief Executive Paul Brocklehurst is Chairman and our Marketing Manger, Katie Yates is events organiser.
Too many people in this country feel the housing market is not working for them. So, how do we fix this? We believe we can achieve more when it comes to looking for a solution if we work together than as individual so, as a sector, we have come together to collaboratively work out how, beyond our existing work, land promoters and developers can contribute to finding a solution to the undersupply of housing in this country.
The perceived complicated and lengthy nature of the planning system is commonly blamed for the supply of housing not meeting the demand for new homes. Within this, the role land promoters play in the delivery of housing, infrastructure and entire new communities is often misunderstood.
The Land Promoters and Developers Federation consists of a number of key players in the sector, both large and small, who have come together to speak with one voice on common issues relating to housing delivery. We want to dispense with some of the myths and misconceptions around the role of land promoters and developers by highlighting the expertise and track record of our members as well as through research relating to the sector as a whole.
