Strategic Land and Promotion Agreements
We regularly act for developers and landowners on both large and small scale strategic development agreements to allow sites to be promoted through the local planning framework.
Our straight forward and practical advice allows us to quickly reach the commercially important parts of these complex transactions which produces excellent results for our clients; whether they be developers or landowners.
We recently acted on a land acquisition for two national developers of a development site in Alton, Hampshire for 275 houses. We acted for the developers in respect of the negotiation of the option agreement approximately four years before the planning permission was achieved and the land acquired. We also acted on a collaboration agreement for the two developers and the infrastructure agreements to allow the development to be constructed.
We are also acting for a farmer landowner near Guildford, Surrey, who has entered into a long term option agreement with a developer, who has recently achieved planning permission for 240 houses. This will be a major development and we are currently actively involved with the landowner ensuring that they receive all the necessary advice and the matter is brought to a successful conclusion.
