Our nationwide experience of successfully identifying, promoting and delivering residential and mixed-use sites ranges from new settlements and urban extensions to small sites and infill development.

Strategic land

The successful promotion of strategic land - greenfield land outside existing settlements, where the principle of development needs to be established in addition to the scale and form of development - requires careful strategy development based upon a depth of experience and an appreciation of the inter-relationship between politics and planning.

Nexus Planning provides market-leading advice to clients on all aspects of strategic land promotion across the UK, and our experienced strategic land team operates across England with an enviable track record of success. We assist our clients through the promotion of sites through the development plan process, planning applications and, where appropriate / necessary, planning appeals.

Our strategic land offer is enhanced by our wider experience advising developers / housebuilders looking to purchase sites / take sites through to on-site delivery. This understanding allows us to ensure that outline applications / permissions are ‘fit for purpose’, ensuring optimum land value at the point of sale.

Our core service can, as appropriate, be supplemented by our ability to manage an Environmental Impact Assessment process (we are accredited by IEMA) and inputs from our Analytics and Research team that is able to provide a range of associated demographic, socio-economic and human heath inputs.

To ensure that we have an appropriate understanding of relevant regional / local issues, we have senior team members with strategic land expertise in each of our geographical teams in Birmingham, Bristol, London, Manchester and Reading. However, our ‘One Nexus’ approach allows us to bring together the experience, coverage, enthusiasm and shared knowledge from across the business in a seamless and agile way, to provide an even more effective service for our strategic land clients.
