Land & Development

Developing high quality family homes in areas people genuinely want to live is the underlying ethos that drives everything we do at Russell Homes. But there’s so much more to it than simply designing and building beautiful properties.

We are always looking to identify sites which have the potential to provide communities with much-needed new housing, and we work closely with landowners and other partners to secure the appropriate planning approvals to allow development and maximise land values.

Often that means working in partnership with other stakeholders to plan a scheme which not only provides new homes, but also additional community benefits.

Many of our upcoming projects, for example, involve major highways, infrastructure, social and even commercial elements to unlock the potential of the land, often resolving existing issues which are adversely affecting the community.

Our expert team of land buyers and planners has the knowledge and experience to put together proposals which get permission.

Their track record speaks for itself and, as the business continues to grow, we have a higher volume of projects coming through our development pipeline than ever before.
