Strategic land acquisition, development and promotion

Highwood’s commitment to strategic land acquisition and development is core to our business activities. Our vision to procure and regenerate brownfield, greenfield and neglected sites for the benefit of the community, the housing supply chain and the environment has driven our achievements for 30 years.

We have a proven track record in selective land acquisition and take an intelligent approach to allocation and planning; our pool of architectural and planning resources ensures necessary permissions can be processed smoothly and granted without complications. We’re adept at promoting and maximising value for even the most complex regeneration or urban expansion sites, which invariably bring their own set of social, economic or environmental constraints.

Key to the success of these projects is an overarching responsibility to the communities we serve as we work to deliver large-scale, sustainable strategic sites. As well as the residential developments we construct, we’re building new schools, community centres, allotments and reviving sporting facilities that benefit everyone who lives in and around the environments we conceive.

All this is possible because we have a straightforward management structure that can identify, process and exploit land potential fast; we’re well placed to commit to long-term investment options and short-term agreements with quick decisions that national operators are unable to make. The partners we lead in these projects are also fundamental to our ability to deliver. Our relationships with landowners, local authorities and the communities in which we work are the result of long and rewarding associations that have transformed landscapes and communities.

You can see the results of Highwood’s exciting programme of strategic land acquisition, development and promotion in our projects pages. If you’d like to talk to us about land that may have development potential, please contact Simon Beech.
