The Land We Purchase

We are a major buyer of both consented and unconsented land and are always looking out for more.

If you have land to sell, no matter what the size, that may be suitable for new apartments, future residential or mixed use development, we’d like to hear from you, whatever its current condition or status.

The flexibility of an independent housebuilder

Previously, we have purchased over 1000 acres in an acquisition. We have then gone on to achieve planning consent for a development of 5,750 new homes on that land. You can read more about that development here – www.chilmington-green.co.uk

We have also previously purchased land under one acre and have gone on to achieve planning consent for a small development of only a few new homes.

No land is too big or small for us to purchase, if the potential is there for new apartments or homes we will always be interested.

Expertise in achieving planning permission

We very much specialise in land without planning permission and have considerable expertise in resolving difficult planning problems and sites with previous planning refusals. We have very good relationships with many of the local authorities in the areas that we develop.

The Hodson Developments Land and Planning Team will quickly assess the potential of your site and follow up with a discreet and professional service to facilitate the purchase of the land promptly and efficiently.

For over 35 years we have forged successful relationships with land agents and landowners. We have a wealth of experience in helping sites that may otherwise be overlooked reach their full potential.

Our close team of planning consultants and architects are experienced in delivering the right product to the right area. They specialise in unique, superior-quality developments in desirable locations, and we always develop new apartments and homes sympathetic to their surroundings.

Quick and discreet decision-making and purchase

As an established independent company, we have a flat management structure and are in a strong financial position. So we can act very quickly and decisively on a wide variety of acquisition opportunities.

We pride ourselves on our swift decision-making, always responding to offers from landowners or their agents quickly.

If you are a landowner or agent, or know of an area that would benefit from redevelopment, please get in touch.

It’s our success that has given us a reputation that sets us apart.

Strategic land for major projects

We have had great success in creating and delivering major residential-led developments. These have included some major infrastructure developments and our reputation as a leader in the field has been hard earned.
A great example is our recent Chilmington Green project of 5,570 homes, which was in the planning system for over 8 years and has won multiple master planning and placemaking awards. A vibrant, mixed use new community in the town of Ashford in Kent, Chilmington Green will provide 5,750 new homes as well as retail, community, social and recreational facilities. It will boast its own high street, a secondary school, four primary schools, a park, extensive areas of green space and will deliver over 1,000 new jobs for the local area. You can see more here www.chilmington-green.co.uk

Our strategic land business requirements include:

  • Large scale residentially led development opportunities from up to 5,000 acres
  • Sites capable of accommodating from a few hundred to over 20,000 new apartments and homes
  • Areas of constrained supply with good planning prospects in the medium term
  • We are flexible to purchase outright, agree option agreements or conditional contracts, subject to planning

We work in a close partnership with private and public sector landowners, their agents and advisors. All to make sure we deliver the best value for the land.

These skills in placemaking have received positive responses from planning authorities. This means we are able to successfully secure planning consents.

Commercial Land

If you are looking to buy, rent, lease, invest or develop, no matter how large or small your requirements, through team work and exceptional know how we may be able to respond to your needs. Whether you are a retailer, an investor or developer we have a number of offices, retail and leisure opportunities within our land holdings.

Please contact our Land and Planning Department on [email protected] if you would like to discuss any opportunities.

We have an unrivalled track record

We have promoted and delivered award winning new developments for many years and we have recently been awarded both ‘’Private Developer of the year 2016’’ and ‘’Best Strategic Planning 2016 award’’ for our work.

We apply a visionary, landscape-led approach

Unlike many others, we articulate a vision for each of our developments. This means the developments we create are places of character and quality. We use planting and open spaces to sensitively and thoughtfully create great environments for residents to enjoy.

We apply the principles of placemaking

We create places of lasting value through master planning, exceptional landscaping and infrastructure, always delivered with great attention to detail.

We deliver valuable infrastructure

We ensure the streetscape and landscape make an impact early on in the process. And that planning obligations are delivered to maximise value (such as the early provision of community facilities).

We work in partnership

We have excellent relationships with Governments, Local Councils, Statutory Authorities and Agencies. We recognise the importance of a collaborative approach at all stages of planning and development, so we work closely with existing communities to understand their concerns and aspirations.

We build homes

Our expertise in house building means we have a real and genuine understanding of the power of creating a cohesive community. So we are able to demonstrate to Local Authorities that we will deliver the top-quality housing and development they are under pressure to provide.

Our dedicated strategic land team

We have selected one of the best specialist teams in the industry to provide the land, planning and technical skills we need. This allows us to successfully identify, promote and deliver major residential-led developments of new apartments and homes.

We have a passion for what we do

At Hodson Developments we are passionate in all that we do to. And it’s our passion that drives us to deliver successful results.
