Who we are

We are a specialist team of property developers, planning consultants, chartered surveyors and land managers. Some of our team members have over 35 years experience in the property industry.

What we do

We work with landowners to optimise the value of their land at no cost or risk to them. We enter into commercial agreements with landowners and fund planning applications for residential or commercial use. We will also joint venture with landowners. We specialise in identifying land nationwide with:

  • No planning.
  • Lapsed planning.
  • Rejected planning permission.
  • Sites with planning permission that can be re-purposed for co-living use such as student accommodation, offices, etc.

Why we are different

Our combined experience, successful track records, extensive contacts and backgrounds enables us to be highly dynamic and creatively structure deals. We are not restricted like a corporate entity,thus allowing us to take a very broad view on considering all opportunities that are:

  • Nationwide.
  • All price points.
  • In most property sectors.
  • Missed or poorly optimised by others with less experience.

Each site and exit route will vary dependant upon the nature, complexity, size and risk of the project. We will look a variety of sites nationwide where we can achieve planning permission for most property sectors such as co-living, residential, industrial, data centres, and care.
