Main Contact: Your Land Team
If you are interested in partnering with us, we will assess the suitability of your land.
If your land has planning potential, we will make an offer to enter into a promotion agreement, setting out how we will partner with you.
We provide a service, you will continue to own and use your land throughout the process, until your land is sold.
From the moment you decide to partner with us, we pay all costs associated with securing planning permission on your land.
Only when we successfully secure a planning win and sale for you do we get paid – meaning our interests are always aligned.
Main Contact: Your Project Team
Once you have decided to partner with us, you will be appointed a Project Team.
The team is led by a Planner and a Project Manager who will be your main point of contact throughout the entire planning process.
You can be involved in as little or as much of the process as you prefer – some landowners are happy to leave the process entirely to us, whilst others take a more hands-on approach. Either way our dedicated team has one objective – to achieve a planning win for you.
Your team, with the help of our experienced specialist consultants, will prepare a range of technical surveys and reports required as part of a planning application. These detailed documents will be tailored to your land.
We will produce bespoke promotional material as part of our strategy for promoting your land. We proactively engage with the Local Planning Authority and with the wider community. A public consultation is held with the local community and opinions and comments are taken into account as we evolve our plans.
Before we submit a planning application, we will send you a copy of the final documents for your approval. You will also approve public consultation and other promotional material.
Throughout the time we are working on your behalf, our Planning Policy experts will also be involved by making representations to Local Plans to ensure your land’s planning position is protected and has the best chance of success.
We win over 50% of our planning approvals locally at Planning Committee. However, sometimes this is not possible.
If we go to Appeal, our Project Teams are highly skilled at providing planning evidence.
Together, with a selection of expert witnesses and a Barrister (if required), we will produce robust and detailed evidence for the independent Planning Inspector.
At Gladman, we go the ‘country mile’; this can mean finding a unique specialist consultant to address a technical issue, pioneering innovative planning strategies, or where necessary appealing, challenging or defending appeal decisions in the High Court or Court of Appeal.
We never set a budget for the sites we work on - no matter what the cost we will not give up if we believe a planning permission is achievable.
Main Contact: Your Land Sales Team
Once we’ve achieved planning permission, we will agree a sales strategy with you; this includes choosing when and who we will ask to tender for your land.
A detailed sales pack will be produced and sent to interested parties and competitive bids will be invited.
Any further investigations that may be required will be carried out by our in-house technical team to make sure we get the best possible offers for your land.
After the initial bid stage, ‘best and final’ bids will be invited from shortlisted parties and together we will select a preferred bidder to purchase the site.
It is in our interests to optimise the value of your land as we, like you, only get paid when the land is sold.
We have excellent relationships with the country’s best house builders, which ensures that the sale process is as smooth and quick as possible.
