We have a proven track record in selective land acquisition and take an intelligent approach to allocation and planning. Our in-house specialist resources are without parallel in an industry that sees land move rapidly and ensure we can make swift, considered decisions that don’t rely on time-consuming board judgements.
Highwood’s commitment to 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 the past 30 years.
Key to our success is land purchasing expertise is decades of experience in strategic land planning. Our land heritage spans a range of development disciplines, from strategic, long-term sites that are suitable for large-scale, mixed-use schemes and complex regeneration and urban expansion to community and residential, retirement and nursing home projects.
We’re always looking for new opportunities to create, regenerate and transform land across the south coast. If you’re a landowner of a site in excess of one acre that might be of interest to us, please get in touch.
Partnering a developer in a major strategic land promotion is a huge commitment that calls for trust, professionalism and flexibility. Highwood appreciated that we had a business to run during this process and their unrelenting pursuit of an approach that would take account of that made for a rewarding and personal experience for everyone involved. All aspects were carefully thought through and expertly managed - we were delighted with the results.
I owned an area of land and was approached by Highwood who had an exciting proposal to develop it. We met and discussed their plans and were impressed with how well thought through they were. The entire process was conducted seamlessly and the projected was very well executed – my family and I are all very happy with how the entire transaction was managed.
Several parties were interested in our land, including National Housebuilders but, after an initial meeting, we felt Highwood was best placed to take on the project to transform our sports club’s land. Highwood’s ideas considered everyone’s needs – from our members to those of the local community and we’ve been very impressed with its professionalism and sensitive approach at every stage.
We were approached by Highwood who had a concept in mind for a parcel of land that I owned. We were a surprised at the scale of the project at first, but were soon overwhelmed with the time and energy Highwood put into every detail from the off. They kept me informed at every step and I’m delighted with the outcome and the timeliness with which all works were completed.
Highwood is a pioneering developer with a determination to build intelligent schemes in beautiful environments. We’ve worked alongside Highwood’s teams from feasibility and transport planning to highway design and civil engineering phases and have always found them to be knowledgeable, pragmatic and always on top of their game.
