Realistic and
reliable advice



Creating great land and development deals is hard work

Successful land deals only happen when the right site is acquired on the right terms.
The problem comes with identifying realistic opportunities where it’s possible to optimise value without wasting time and money on the wrong proposals or plans that will never be approved. Land acquisition, planning and development can be complex, but it doesn’t have to be frustrating. Millbank Land provides tailored end-to-end solutions to ensure the process is smooth, efficient, and always cost-effective.

And we do it all with a focus on Building with Nature, increasing biodiversity, and working towards Net Zero.

Our strategic and tactical advice is founded on knowledge and experience that spans four decades.

Researching the market

We identify the optimum value and development approach by carrying out detailed analysis on supply, demand and financial viability on both existing competition and future projects, establishing market trends in location, price, unit sizes, uses, living environments, ancillary facilities and property management.

Building relationships

Our no-nonsense yet honest approach results in excellent relationships with landowners and agents, planners, local politicians and community interest groups wherever we operate, ensuring effective engagement because a focus on negotiation and inclusion is more important than ever.

Optimal solutions

Our bespoke design and appraisal software combines design, unit mix optimisation, cost and value engineering to maximise development value for our clients.  We’ll help you achieve top sale prices or win openly-marketed and tendered sites, whilst maintaining excellent margins.

Up-front costs can be minimised through success-related fees and joint ventures or profit-share arrangements. Contact us for details.
