Development Land

As farming changes and yields fluctuate rural businesses are amongst the most innovative businesses in the UK.  For so long the land owned by these businesses has been the conduit through which the main crop is grown to produce the financial yields for the business.  Increasingly, rural businesses are looking at alternative uses for areas of land that are no longer productive.  This is where our expertise on advising on development land and associated projects can come to the fore.

We have advised many rural businesses on the sale of part of their land to potential developers and we have assisted in securing appropriate clawback provisions to allow them to benefit from the potential future development.  We have also assisted rural businesses in the development of areas of their land for renewables projects and more details on this can be found in the Renewables section on our website.

As with all that we do, it is crucial that our guidance is provided in conjunction with other professional advisors and it is especially apparent on development land.  We have strong relationships with Land Agents and Accountants and we work with your other advisors throughout the transaction.
