Land Promoters play a key role in increasing the supply of housing.

Housing is one of the most pressing political issues and is at the centre of the government’s domestic policy agenda.  Central government, local authorities, charities and other parties involved in the housebuilding process agree we need to work together to tackle the housing crisis by increasing the supply, diversity and quality of new homes.

Who We Are

The Land Promoters & Developers 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, local authorities and communities to enhance the planning process, and help deliver the new homes and communities this country needs.

Members specialise in the promotion and development of strategic land across the UK, delivering from 30 new home sites to larger scale sites of up to 10,000 new homes alongside, community facilities, employment and supporting infrastructure.

What Land Promoters Do

LPDF members support the housebuilding sector by providing “oven ready” land with planning permission that can easily be acquired and built out by national and regional housebuilders, helping bring homes 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.  They engage with local authorities, local residents, stakeholder groups and statutory consultees throughout the process.

A Need for New Homes

The worsening of the UK housing crisis is well publicised, with the Government vowing to deliver 300,000 new homes every year.

The LPDF's members are committed to helping deliver new homes across the UK. The pressure on the housing market is significant, with the demand for homes outstripping supply.

An increase in life expectancy, immigration, single person occupancy and the demand for second homes, being just some of the contributing factors.
