Central government, local authorities, charities and other parties involved in the housebuilding process agree we need to work together to tackle the housing emergency by increasing the supply, diversity and quality of new homes.
The Land, Planning and Development Federation (LPDF), formed in early 2018, is a collection of the UK’s leading land promotion and development businesses.
The LPDF represents the views of land promoters, and is working with government and local authorities to enhance the planning process, and to help deliver the new homes and communities this country needs.
Members specialise in the promotion and development of strategic land across the UK, delivering a wide range of sites from small scale (for 30 new homes and above) to larger scale strategic sites of up to 10,000 new homes alongside, community facilities, employment, environmental enhancement and supporting infrastructure.
LPDF members support the housebuilding sector by providing significant “oven ready” land with planning permission that can easily be acquired and built out by national and regional housebuilders, helping to bring much needed new homing to the market in a timely manner to meet local need.
Land promoters invest the time and funding needed to undertake the necessary technical, planning and design work required to secure planning permission and they risk their capital negotiating the complex planning system. They engage with local authorities, local residents, stakeholder groups and statutory consultees throughout the process, to ensure that their scheme address local issues, deliver required local infrastructure and are sympathetic to environmental concerns.
