Land Promotion & Forward Planning

If you own land in a sustainable locality on the edge of an existing urban or sub-urban area it may have development potential, even if it is allocated by the Development Plan as Green Belt or another restrictive designation. The best way to unlock the development potential of such sites is normally to promote the site for reallocation and development through the Development Plan process.


Within Yorkshire many local planning authorities' are presently reviewing their Development Plans and some are accepting submissions from land owners and developers, which put forward sites for reallocation and development. However, once this window of opportunity closes it may not open again for over a decade, so it is important not to miss an opportunity.


HPD can advise on and work to maximise the development potential and value of your land.
