Streamlined solutions developed to provide a plan-led approach to land promotion.

Why promote your land with us

We bring together expertise in sustainable development and planning policy to promote your land and unlock its future potential. We provide strategic land services to developers and landowners to unlock the value of sites through the process of land promotion. Planning potential for all types of development can be realised through successful allocation in a Neighbourhood Plan or Local Plan. We focus on a plan-led approach designed to overcome constraints and optimise development potential.

Proven track record

We have unparalleled planning expertise and a proven successful track record on consents. With solid understanding of local plan and neighbourhood plan processes, targets and housing strategies within our geographical area.

Constraints knowledge

Constraints can be site specific or area-wide driven by policy at national level. Most of the budget is allocated to identifying the constraints (treated as 'deductibles' taken off the final value of the land) and how they shape the overall development scheme.  Using our knowledge we advise the best course of action dependent on the applicable constraints to successfully unlock the potential of your land.

Strategic planning

With Biodiversity Net Gain, Nitrate and Water neutrality policies taking affect, at Smith Simmons we understand the importance of working with the local landscape and its habitats to bring about the best outcome for our clients developments. Turning constraints into opportunities and contributing to the achievement of sustainable development.

SSP's track record & discussions with the planning team reaffirmed our research that they would be the best architect to achieve our goals on our site, we would strongly recommend SSP.

We used Smith Simmons to design and gain planning for works on our Grade II listed Farmhouse. Karo was excellent throughout, really listening to the brief and helped us put a modern twist on our property.
