Strategic land work involves multiple parties and a variety of legal disciplines.

Structuring a transaction can be complex, with planning policy and tax both playing roles.  Our strategic land team delivers projects in the most commercially effective and tax-efficient way.  Working with private developers (commercial and residential), landowners and the public sector, we have an in depth knowledge of the legal structures and issues relating to the delivery of strategic land to development stage. 

The team has extensive experience in dealing with:

  • agreements for the promotion/allocation of land use (other than agriculture) within the Local Development Framework
  • agreements relating to developer obligations to landowners to obtain planning permission
  • option agreements
  • pre-emption agreements
  • overage arrangements
  • landowner consortium/collaboration agreements
  • developer consortium/collaboration agreements.
