If you have a site to sell that you believe has development potential for residential or commercial use, Fenn Wright’s Development Team can advise you on the best method to achieve top price for your land, whether or not you have planning permission.

We provide realistic advice based on our extensive planning experience, local knowledge and research, and provide accurate existing use and anticipated valuations based upon a range of assumed planning outcomes.

We will then establish the best method of sale ranging from off-market private treaty negotiation to joint venture through to formal tender or auction with provision for clawback and overage on any future uplift in site value.

Our marketing methods include:

Register a requirement

Before marketing begins in earnest, we speak to potential buyers already registered with us, and those developers we believe might be interested.


Sites will be displayed on our own frequently updated website. We know how to get the best from online portals such as Rightmove and also upload to Zoopla, which powers many other portals including Primelocation, The Times, and London Evening Standard, and reaches a significant volume of potential buyers who might otherwise be missed.

Print media

We advertise extensively and in colour in local newspapers and magazines, and in the appropriate national and trade press. Our in-house experts are frequently quoted and have articles published, and where a project is of particular interest, press releases are issued to both local and national media.


Local knowledge is crucial when it comes to finding viable development sites to buy. We keep our ears close to the ground .We know which sites have been sold and to whom. We monitor the planning pipeline and the Local Development Plan Framework so as to identify future site releases. We keep in touch with other developers and property agents to establish what sites may be coming forward for sale. We are likely to know the history of those sites that become available and, in conjunction with Fenn Wright’s New Homes team, can advise on which sites offer the most attractive marketing and resales potential.

Once we fully understand your requirements, we can assist you to find and acquire the right site at the right price.

Using our detailed knowledge of the local area and speed of reaction, we have acquired sites for both local and national developers.   For further information and help in finding the ideal development project for you, please contact Roger Hayward or register your requirements online now.
