Strategic Planning

Boyer’s strategic planning service is founded on success in promoting strategic land for development.

Our experience of strategic land extends from site identification to full planning permission. We offer clear analysis of housing requirements, land supply, constraints and opportunities.

We deliver positive results for long term projects by combining land finding, planning, development economics and design capabilities. We have particular expertise, experience and a successful track record in large scale and complex proposals.

We use our commercial awareness, analytical approach and creative skills to add value to successful outcomes. Our team has progressed sites from identification and appraisal to allocation, permission and delivery. We have secured allocations on greenfield and Green Belt sites and substantially increased housing numbers for allocations and maximise commercial returns.

Clients will have a single-point of contact and an accomplished project leader who is responsible for the overall coordination and management of the project with full Director level support and wider team input.

Our team delivers successful outcomes for many leading residential developers, including the Berkeley Group, Bloor Homes, CEG, Crest Strategic Projects, Hallam Land Management, Linden Homes, Redrow Homes, Rydon Homes, Taylor Wimpey and Wates Developments as well as development consortia and landowners.
