Land & Planning

Rectory specialises in identifying and optimising opportunities for the residential development of land. We actively seek development opportunities throughout the Home Counties and select areas of London for a wide range of high quality housing developments from small scale sites of less than 5 units to larger medium sized schemes of around 100 units. Our team of highly qualified and experienced land and planning professionals have detailed knowledge of the planning process and are able to quickly identify viable development opportunities.

We focus on buying and securing land both with and without planning consent and we have considerable expertise in resolving challenging planning issues. Our aim is to deliver exemplary high quality housing schemes and we have extensive knowledge and experience from our wide portfolio of developments which include:-

  • Sensitive greenfield sites
  • Redevelopment of previously used brownfield sites
  • Existing houses within large gardens
  • Conversions of redundant offices and commercial buildings
  • Site assemblies
  • Strategic land and site promotion

The teams at Rectory promote and manage each individual project, working with the landowner whilst ensuring the landowner does not incur any upfront costs. Should you wish to discuss your property or land, we would be pleased to offer a swift and discreet assessment.
