Land Acquisition

Development opportunities required in Hampshire, Dorset and West Sussex

We are a successful, family-owned, business continually searching for development opportunities, however large or small. If you have an opportunity to discuss in complete confidence we would be delighted to hear from you.

We are constantly seeking short and long term development opportunities and have experience in land assembly, joint ventures and promoting strategic land.

We will purchase land with or without planning permission – for a range uses – including residential, commercial, care or mixed use.

We design and build every care home for our sister company, Colten Care, and have an in house architectural team which constantly evolves design and has vast experience overcoming technical challenges.

We are not reliant on bank funding and have a quick decision making process. Fostering close working relationships with local planning authorities, in all the areas we operate, has resulted in successful and deliverable planning permissions for a range of residential, commercial and care ventures.

Do give us a call to discuss any opportunities and please download our latest land acquisition requirements for reference.
