Strategic Land Database

Flag up your land

We invite you to log details of any strategic land you own or control, whether or not it is already in the planning system. If there is a sufficient response, we will set up regional databases,  This will help developers and landowners promote their strategic land , and work with Government and local authorities to streamline the development process. Establishing the databases may also go some way to counter accusations that housebuilders unjustifiably hold on to developable land in its undeveloped state!

Given a natural reluctance to disclose matters which may be considered commercially sensitive, Government may consider incentivising landowners and option holders to make these details public.

Land is, to state the obvious, the raw material without which new housing is difficult to produce. Let’s find out what’s out there and bring it forward.
