THE PROCESS
WHAT WE DO

CSL identifies and promotes land through the planning system for residential and mixed-use development, covering the south of England and the Midlands.

One of the key differences with CSL is that we are a privately funded company, giving landowners certainty of our commitment. The company promotes land on behalf of landowners. We are similar to a funding partner, the only difference being that we take 100% of the risk associated with securing planning permission so there is no financial exposure to the landowner.

HOW WE DO IT

We believe we bring more to a partnership than just funding. CSL has built up in-house expertise and benefits from a knowledgeable team of dedicated Chartered Surveyors and Town Planners.
We take control of all aspects of promotion and drive land forward through the planning system. We take time understanding the intricacies of the local market, working with stakeholders to create the most desirable planning permission. Our ultimate goal is to promote schemes which maximise land value through creation of well-designed environments which make effective and efficient use of land.

At CSL we adopt a flexible approach, tailoring our strategy to each and every circumstance.

We work with the following structures:

- Promotion Agreements
- Option Agreements
- Hybrid Agreements
- Conditional Purchases
- Unconditional Purchases
What we're looking for
CSL is open to a wide range of strategic land opportunities from sites capable of accommodating 20 units upwards with no upper limit. We are looking for greenfield or brownfield (previously developed) land in sustainable locations across the South of England and the Midlands.

During the planning process CSL always remains highly focused, keeping in regular contact with the landowner or agent. We can only achieve this working with a select number of landowners. We intend to grow the company by keeping our portfolio manageable so that each of our landowners can rest assured their land is constantly the top priority.
