Property development shouldn’t have to be such high risk

Surviving in the world of property development is tougher than ever.
And success is dependent on knowledge – knowing how to identify the best sites, recognise what the opportunities are and understand what it takes to deliver a proiect on time – and profitably. Get it right and the rewards are high. Get it wrong and the risks are significant. We believe developers should have easy access to the industry know-how they need to succeed.

‘If you want to save yourself hundreds of thousands in potential errors and save years of your life, then get involved with Milbank Land Academy.’

Director, Stronghold Property

Learn to develop land and property with confidence

Property development is complex. It’s easy to get it wrong and be tempted to cut corners.

We started Millbank Land Academy so developers could stop missing out on opportunities and start making the most of their projects. Importantly, we want to support and encourage property development to be done ‘the right way’. The academy delivers a range of virtual courses that equip participants with the knowledge and experience to find, de-risk and optimise every potential opportunity – so you can land the best deals, no matter what stage of your development career you’re at.


Revealing the insider secrets that’ll give property developers the edge


Our curriculum is devised and delivered by Millbank Group founder Paul Higgs MRICS.  Paul held senior positions at Laing Homes and Barratt Developments Plc for 10 years and is CEO of award-winning developer, Millbank Homes.
