Throughout the UK, Carter Jonas has been involved in some of the largest development projects – from urban extensions to new settlements – acting for a variety of clients and across the public, institutional, charity, corporate and private sectors.

Successfully promoting development sites relies on good timing, strong project management and an expert team of professional advisers. Our national planning and development team has a wealth of experience in promoting land for development and in successfully securing planning permissions.

Carter Jonas has extensive experience in advising landowners directly on the promotion of development sites. We can also identify suitable development partners who would bear the costs of promotion and work in collaboration with us and our landowning clients. This can be achieved through options, promotion agreements or joint ventures, depending on the particular requirements of the client and the project.

Our experience covers:

  • Identification of development potential
  • Strategic planning and development advice
  • Project management and planning promotion
  • Development/promotion partner selection
  • Land assembly
  • Landowner collaboration and equalisation agreements
  • Options and other forms of promotional agreements
  • Land sales
