Despite challenging market conditions, our professionals are pleased to report development land sales during July that represent more than 650 housing plots across southern England.

Acting for a range of landowners, we have successfully secured development land sales across Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, and Northamptonshire in recent weeks.

Key highlights include the sale of land off Gipsy Lane in Kettering, where we had previously obtained outline planning permission for up to 350 dwellings on behalf of a retained institutional client.

In Gloucestershire, we completed the sale of a parcel for 135 dwellings on the Perrybrook scheme near Gloucester, where we continue to manage the phased disposal of land with planning permission for 1,500 new homes and mixed-use development.

Similarly, in Oxfordshire we have exchanged unconditional contracts on the sale of a further phase of serviced residential development land for 171 new dwellings, on our scheme at Kingsgrove, Wantage.

Commenting on the team’s success, James Bainbridge, Head of Planning & Development Division said: “This recent string of successful disposals is encouraging news for the development land market and represents excellent results for our landed clients. We are working harder than ever to deliver for our clients and the current market conditions only emphasises the need for expert advice.”

“As we approach the autumn, we are busy bringing forward a number of immediate and longer-term development land opportunities to the market across the south of England. As such if you own development land please get in touch with our team and we would be pleased to share with you our view on current market sentiment.”
