The strategic land function remains one of the most unique services offered by Goadsby, and a significant number of long term options to purchase have been secured within major growth areas. We act on behalf of private individuals, private and public companies, investors, regional developers and national housebuilders.
Research provides the key to success, with the Land Division having an in-house database of emerging and existing Development Plans. The identification of major growth areas provides the starting point for option negotiations with landowners. Signed-up agreements allow for land to be promoted, through the planning system, over the relevant time span.
Increasingly, the sale and acquisition of residential building land is focused on 'brownfield' development. With the need to provide a large part of the nation's housing in the foreseeable future from this source, we have developed expertise in the field of dealing with land formerly having commercial uses. Here, development requires environmental awareness and an understanding of contamination and ground conditions in order to negotiate an appropriate sales and acquisition package on behalf of clients.
