The practice of land promotion has been subject to much criticism, with accusations aimed at those in the sector of profiteering from land speculation, while doing nothing to help solve the housing crisis. The counter-argument, however, is that strategic land firms and developers play a key role in assembling sites and gaining planning permission.


At a time when the UK is facing a housing crisis, long term and large-scale strategic land sites present an important opportunity in fuelling housing delivery. This session will explore:


  • What are the opportunities strategic land sites can present to the sector?
  • What are the barriers of getting these sites off the ground?
  • How can the public and private sector work together?
