Development and Social Housing

Working with you

We work with developer clients and their teams at all levels from the management team to those onsite. We work with our clients at every step of the development process from the initial site investigation, through the planning process to the final plot disposal.

We become an integral part of your team and this approach sets us apart. With our expert social housing knowledge we advise house builders and registered providers of social housing at every stage of the development process.  We frequently work with local councils, housing enablers and local planning authorities to facilitate the development of social housing across the south coast. We provide a range of services to social housing clients including assistance with facilities management, office leasing and housing stock acquisitions or disposals.

We pride ourselves on our commercial and pragmatic approach to development opportunities. We present solution based advice working with you to ensure that the site that you want can be developed for your desired purpose whether for flats or houses, social housing or high end luxury accommodation.

Our team has acted on some of the most significant land assembly and housing development sites in the region. We act for registered providers of social housing across the country and for many small to medium sized house builders. We play an important role in helping our clients meet their construction and financial funding targets.
