are you a landowner?

Optimis acts for a number of landowners, for single property owners to owners of large land portfolios. Each client has a different need and we provide a bespoke strategy to deliver the best planning and development outcome.

We recognise that landowners need experts not only to deliver planning solutions but also form development outcomes that meet their aims, whether that is to subsequently sell land to the house-building industry or assist a landowner to develop their own property for their own needs.

Our experiences and skills in the business is focussed on delivering the optimum planning outcome to deliver development, mindful of risk, commercial consideration, personal sentiment and local politics, quality of development and timing. We bespoke our planning strategy to meet the needs of clients and we carefully consider the best tactics to achieve this.

We offer a range of services to meet your needs, from simple planning appraisals to assess risk, to strategies that deliver short, medium and long term enhanced outcomes or minimise Planning Obligations imposed on development. Where landowners are intent on selling their land we are able to offer a unique insight into the best tactics to deliver the most successful sale of land. Our expertise in acting for landowners to sell land through our Land department is gained from years of experience acting for developers and land owners to negotiate the disposal of land for development.

Our team have worked in the housebuilding industry acquiring and selling land and achieving planning success and so we are able to bring that insight into the tactical deployment of our skills to maximise the value of development for our clients.
