Furthermore we are experts at releasing "hidden" values from land and properties by working with trusted architects and planners to achieve great results from even the most challenging opportunities.


Land Acquisitions

All shapes and sizes of land are currently in demand; from uniquely shaped plots that suit bespoke properties in densely populated areas, to large open areas more suited to mixed-use developments. We are committed to helping you make sense of the options available, whilst ensuring the very best returns.

We understand that house builders rely on agents with proven experience in identifying and supplying land opportunities. Heather & Lay have an extensive national network of builders and development companies who are actively looking to acquire land with development potential in the local area.


Pre-Planning Advice

The various stages of the planing process can be difficult to navigate but we can clearly explain the process to help you achieve the level of planning consent you require to secure a sale. Working closely with council planning officers and private planning consultants, we can offer invaluable insight that is regularly converted into profitable results. 

We will work in partnership with you and can advise you on the disposal of land with or without planning consent and can often suggest improvements to existing plans which may boost your site's value and saleability.


Development Consultancy Services

If you own a property or piece of land that may have development potential, we can provide you with design advice, tactical guidance on key regeneration projects or even getting the housing mix right for a specific location. We are on hand to help you negotiate with possible partners such as house builders and developers.

Our services, can be engaged at every stage of the development cycle, although we can deliver maximum value when we are consulted early on in the process. You can count on our expertise and we deliver services you can trust.
