LPDF members support the housebuilding sector by providing “oven ready” sites with planning permission that can easily be acquired and built out quickly by national, regional and SME housebuilders
We help bring homes to the market quickly to meet local housing need as soon as possible. Sites delivered by land promoters include both greenfield and brownfield land and they often require significant investment in infrastructure and local services and facilities as well as potentially requiring decontamination.
Bringing sites through the planning system
The LPDF’s members always seek to work closely with local authorities and the communities they serve when preparing planning applications.
As a result, above 90% of new homes on sites where the applicant was a land promoter were granted by the local planning authority without the need for recourse to an appeal. This success rate brings an efficiency to the planning process, saving councils the time and resources of having to dealing with speculative, unrealistic development proposals.
