Industry: It is widely publicised that the UK Government has set a target of at least 240,000 new homes to be built every year until 2020 to tackle the shortfall in housing. The challenge is to find the land on which to build them.
Proposition: UK strategic land investment provides a unique opportunity for investors seeking to diversify their portfolios by investing in undeveloped land in the UK.
Strategic land refers to the location, accessibility and potential. The focus on sites adjacent to existing settlements in areas that have experienced a high growth in population.
These are promising sites where the potential for development could lead to a greater return on investment.
After the land has been funded the management team carries through the planning permission process. Obtaining planning permission typically causes the value of land to increase – at this point the land will be sold and the sale proceeds, minus taxes and costs, will be distributed to investors.
