Development & Planning

Our Development & Planning teams work together to help you create, enhance and protect your land and property assets for the future.

For over 135 years, we have been proactive and trusted partners to our clients. Embedded in communities across the UK, our Development & Planning teams bring together deep-rooted local knowledge from Strutt & Parker, with our wider commercial BNP Paribas Real Estate expertise. We can also use the global reach that comes with being part of the BNP Paribas Group to find the right solution to any real estate challenge.

As a property and planning consultancy, we’ve retained our collaborative approach and make sure that, whatever the size of your business, we work with you to understand your objectives. We will shape the team to your needs and can lead or sit alongside you, providing independent commercial development and planning advice to meet your requirements.

Whether you are a landowner, developer, institution, public body or private individual, we can help you seek out and unlock new development opportunities, whilst protecting and growing the value of your assets. We have built relationships that last for decades thanks to our clients, and they trust in us to support them through the hurdles of land acquisition and assembly, securing development and planning permission and suitable exit strategies.

Our Development & Planning teams work together to help clients identify opportunities for sustainable residential and commercial development, from advising on retaining existing infrastructure, to building future development longevity and preparing for the new biodiversity targets. We help clients navigate change and plan ahead for a sustainable future. Find out more about our ESG & Sustainability services.
