At Townends, part of Stirling Ackroyd Incorporating Bridge, our specialist Land Team are on hand to assist with all aspects of Land and Planning. From acquisition, to site sales and expert consultancy; we can also assist with planning advice based on local market knowledge and area statistics.
Our Land Team work in conjunction with our New Homes Sales Department to assist developers and land owners alike. We can guide you from land acquisition, project manage your development construction right through to selling off-plan and completed units to our ever-growing database of active applicants.
If you’re a developer, housebuilder or local authority in the market for a single piece of land or multiple development sites, we can source the ideal opportunity. If the land isn’t already on our books, we’ll proactively search the area on your behalf to find the right site for your needs. Our team’s local knowledge, combined with the contacts we’ve developed over the years, means we’re perfectly placed to offer both on and off the market land opportunities.
If you are looking for residential development opportunities or income generating assets, we understand how to acquire opportunities for all types needs. Our expertise and longstanding ties within our communities allows us to source on and off the market sites for a wide range of developers and housebuilders, along with many privately backed individuals. Our unique and personal approach means that we may deal with sites never intended for the open market and will always act in a discreet manner to make sure everyone’s interests are protected.
We assess the viability of the land before even approaching clients – streamlining the land acquisition process. Crucially, our valuations are based on facts, not opinions, and are based on real time sales values from our network of offices and staff on the ground, allowing you to make an informed decision about purchasing the right piece of land.
Once we’ve sourced the site, we’ll also assist with its acquisition, valuing the plot and forming a plan to approach the land owner. Land negotiations are frequently very detailed, requiring expert advice and support. We’ll walk this through with clients every step of the way until the deal is done.
If you own land and aren’t sure of its value, talk to our expert land team. We’re specialists in assessing the potential of plot and releasing the value of both brownfield and greenfield sites for vendors – from back gardens and listed buildings, right up to large-scale industrial sites.
We work closely with our clients to understand whether a plot has residential or mixed-use value in a short period of time – regardless of whether it has planning permission. Our expertise includes the tailored marketing of the site for sale, which includes advertising to an extensive network of land buyers. We use a number of different sales methods, including on and off market sales, informal tenders and formal tenders.
Our local knowledge means we understand the market factors that will affect the sale of your land. Whether your land is destined to become someone’s next home or a new shop serving the local area, we’ll be able to advise on a strategy that will maximise its value. Or, if you are considering an unconditional sale, subject to planning options or a partner to joint venture with, we can provide you with the information needed to make the right decision.
Selling or acquiring land is a complex process. We have a fully-formed network of contacts who specialise in matters such as planning consent, environment consultancy and project management.
However, the first step when it comes to all land matters is assessing a site’s viability. Our team combine their understanding of the local area with their expertise of land matters to produce a report that uncovers a site’s potential for development.
Assessing the value of a site and obtaining the right planning permission is a crucial and often complex stage of the development process. It’s important that your estimations are as accurate as possible and include the latest local property data. We can advise on both on and off-plan sites, which are either partially or completely built. We can also assist with site design and maximising the space to make sure your asset realises its true potential.
Whether you’re considering selling or bidding for a site, our market intelligence service includes a detailed pricing and sales report to help optimise your site valuation. We’ll also provide the essential local knowledge and advice needed to secure speedy planning application decisions.
