The Strategy Behind Strategic Land

Are you the owner of land located on the edge of a built-up area, town or village? Yes? - Did you know you could be sitting on a low-risk opportunity that could be an immense financial asset and assist the housing crisis in your community. 

Today, more and more property developers are looking to invest both time and money in strategic land with long-term potential for residential or mixed-use development. 

Strategic land is defined as agricultural or amenity land that may have future development potential in the next 5 – 20 years 

In the UK, housebuilding is falling short of the demand, leaving thousands of people without the opportunity of owning their own home. In response to this crisis, the government has pledged to deliver 200,000 new homes a year until 2020. Unfortunately, reports indicate that the government will not reach this goal. 

So, what does this mean for you? Land located on the edge of a town or villages are ideal for residential and mixed-use developments if it can be shown that the site is sustainable and meets the housing demand without conflicting with the local plan policies. 

Property developers are looking for opportunities in excess of 10 acres such as farms, large estates, industrial sites, to help overcome this current crisis. Selling your land to a property developer is not only financially rewarding, it is also makes the process of selling your land/property low-risk and hassle-free.
