Property development opportunities in the
East of England

We achieve excellence by forming close stakeholder relationships, which guide and inspire us to produce premium developments that enrich communities.

Whether landowner, local authority or Community Land Trust, and whatever your vision or goal, we pledge to involve you throughout the process and keep you well-informed. We take all opinions seriously and, if any issues arise, we find effective, long-term solutions.

We are always interested in partnerships, projects and joint ventures with investors and funders, landowners, private businesses and public sector organisations.

Investors & funders

For investors, we present opportunities that align with your own aims. Because you want a positive return, we invest funds intelligently across the region to develop high-demand properties that you will be proud to be associated with.

Since the scope of each of our projects is unique, so are the funding options. We tailor investment packages, matching the scheme with the most appropriate funder. Typically, our projects are valued between £5 million and £25 million, and we work on five or six projects at any one time.

Landowners

For landowners, we offer opportunities for rewarding partnerships. Not only do we buy land, but we can also join forces with you to create prestigious schemes and provide an enhanced return.

Whatever the planning status, we are always eager to hear about land opportunities. We can purchase from you or work in collaboration with you to plan and deliver new projects.

Public sector organisations

For local authorities and community stakeholders, we offer outstanding levels of engagement and do our utmost to help you meet the demands of growing communities across the region. Take Manor Farm in Stretham as an example; we spread affordable housing among privately-owned homes to create a more balanced and integrated community.

Thanks to our significant experience of working with local authorities, housing associations and community land trusts, we understand the need to deliver more homes across the region. Work with us for sustainable, inspired solutions.

Our longstanding relationship with Laragh goes back a few years; they successfully delivered a small scale residential conversion and renovation of a historic College property in Cambridge. Having proven themselves to be reliable partners, with a flexible, open approach, we selected them as development partner for a larger residential scheme on our land. Laragh delivered exactly what had been agreed. We would be very pleased to work with the company again on suitable schemes.

In terms of the Manor Farm development, what we have got is exactly as agreed at the start, and it’s rare to be able to genuinely say that about a project. The commitment from the whole Laragh team has been really impressive.

I think it is an extraordinarily exciting development, a place where people would want to live, with wide open spaces, good design and high-quality homes. I am very proud to be associated with Manor Farm and I think it is an example of what can be achieved when communities work together alongside planners and developers.

I really feel that if we are to have sustainable development across Cambridgeshire, and indeed across the UK, then CLTs like this one at Stretham are an example of the way forward.
