      'Landowner-Led Development' - three-part series

      This three-part webinar series with Farmers Weekly, 'Landowner-Led Development', explores the opportunities available for landowners in building a legacy through development. In case you missed it, you can watch all of the recordings below.

      12 Oct 2021 Webinar series
      Luzborough - a legacy development project

      Landowners may live with the consequences of their development decisions for years to come. “Legacy developments” allow landowners to exert a certain level of control in the design, construction and even management stage of projects, which can ensure the outcome enhances reputation and delivers desired financial, social and environmental return.

      In the first webinar of the series, An introduction to Legacy Development Opportunities, our panel discussed:

      • what legacy development is;
      • why it is happening;
      • the right conditions for promotion of development; and
      • what landowners need to consider and have in place.

      This panel is chaired by Farmers Weekly business editor, Suzie Horne with panellists, Rob Hopwood – partner at Bidwells, Iain McVicar – partner, farm and estates team at Albert Goodman and Charles Anderson  – partner at Farrer & Co.

      In the second session in our Landowner-led Development series we had a closer look at residential development and the value of “patient capital”.

      Our panel of experts demonstrate how the value of land can increase the longer the landowner holds on to it through the planning stages.

      The panel were able to guide along the various stages of development with a case study approach and answered burning questions from the audience. 

      Together with industry experts we delve deeper into the jargon and explore:

      • how the deal is brokered and what your options are;
      • how it will be delivered and what is the process;
      • disposal of land parcels
      • legacy and ongoing land stewardship; and
      • the role of the promoter.

      This panel was chaired by Farmers Weekly business editor, Suzie Horne with panellists, Hannah Beamish – partner at Bidwells, Danny Clifford – partner at Ensors and Caroline Hanratty, partner, real estate, Mills & Reeve.
