Strategic Land Release

Green Belt Site - Housing Land

Project Brief

Prime Land Consultants project managed the promotion of this 5 acre greenfield site through planning process and out of the green belt within Glasgow City. We coordinated a professional team including planning consultants, consulting engineers (who advised on traffic, services and site remediation) and architects to promote the site through the local development plan. We had to demonstrate that the site was deliverable and effective to negative planners.
Because the site was green belt, the whole process took 9 years which was a result of the unnecessarily slow planning process.
