It is never too early to start thinking about whether your land has development potential, and putting together a strategy for your land.
As housing demand increases, so do the opportunities for landowners to offer up land (including green belt sites) for potential residential development.
This means your land could be more valuable than you expect!
Your land is an important asset, whether you have surplus farm land, a country estate, large garden, grazing land and paddocks or defunct rural business land.
Land is the key ingredient in the building of new homes, and one of the most common questions is, how much is our land worth?
Answering that question isn’t as simple as it might seem. The development potential of any land is affected by the planning system, supply and demand, comparable sites and site specific calculations.
Obtaining planning permission can be expensive, risky and challenging and requires patience and expertise, which is where Catesby Estates are able to assist.
We obtain planning permission and then market the site to housebuilders securing the highest possible financial return for the landowner.
The landowner is consulted during the whole process and our return is based on a pre-agreed split of the sale proceeds.
Local Authorities will request mitigation measures against development.
Some of these costs can be covered in the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) or by the Section 106 Town and County Planning Act.
We are well versed in negotiating these costs on behalf of landowners to ensure all parties involved reach a satisfactory conclusion.

Disused sports facilities
Defunct rural business
We will use our in-house expertise and financial resources to fund the land promotion.
After obtaining planning permission we then market the site directly to housebuilders, therefore maximising the return on your land.
The Government is vowing to deliver 300,000 new homes every year.
We are committed to helping landowners and housebuilders deliver high quality new homes and communities.
Landowners select us as their land promoter, due to our track record in successfully delivering planning consents, and our ability to maximise land value.
