The right land, in the right location, is important to us and we're always keen to talk to landowners thinking about selling. We're interested in both greenfield and brownfield sites, both large and small. Typically, we build around 2 to 3 million square feet of new logistics centres annually in the UK. Development on this scale takes up about 100 to 150 acres every year. We have the financial strength to pursue planning permission, buy land and develop both buildings and infrastructure. We do not need funding from third parties to pursue planning permission nor to acquire and develop land. Even if you haven't made your mind up, we're happy to chat and explore whether your land may be suitable for industrial logistics development.
We have a proven track record of bringing land forward for development and work in partnership with the landowner to deliver the best outcome for everyone involved. We work closely with everyone involved in the planning process, from engaging politicians at a strategic level right through to discussion of the details with statutory consultees. Our success rate in obtaining planning permission speaks for itself and, as the long-term owners of the logistics buildings we develop, we are keen to build long-lasting and trusted relationships with our landowners and the local community.
