Big is beautiful. By joining forces with neighbouring landowners or buying more land you can be more ambitious with your proposals, generating higher returns than you might going it alone.

We’ll bring landowners together by setting up collaboration agreements to make sure everyone’s interests are protected and value optimised for mutual benefit.
Agreeing to work in partnership with other landowners means identifying common objectives while respecting individual needs. Are my interests going to be protected? How will value and costs be agreed and split in any arrangement?
We know how to bring multiple landowners together in a fair and collaborative way so they can all participate. With agreements that equalise returns, we’ll simplify the complexity.
Sitting at the front of negotiations, we’ll work to set up the collaboration arrangements between landowners and the strategic land agreement with a development partner, and advise on the parties best placed to help bring your land forward in the way you envisage.
Assembling land can be completed relatively quickly but partners can often end up working together for many years. We’ll help you get things right from the start
