Wates Developments | Wates

Passionate about development – investors and partners in the places people aspire to live

Wates Developments specialises in land, planning and residential development throughout Southern England. Our financial strength, corporate stability and commitment to what we do make us a strong and attractive partner or purchaser for both land owners and developers alike.

Our business holds a large and growing portfolio of potential residential development land and our team focuses on securing valuable planning consents in sustainable locations, in both town and country where it is needed most.

Land Investment

We identify and promote land in areas needing development and new homes.

We secure both greenfield and brownfield residential land opportunities through freehold acquisitions, land options and promotional agreements on sites with or without planning consent.

Unlike most in development, we require no external funding to purchase land and demonstrate flexibility to suit individual landowner circumstances and requirements.

Specialist Planning Delivery

Engaging with communities is at the heart of what we do. Our team is highly skilled and passionate about creating development visions and ‘placemaking’ solutions whilst working with local residents and stakeholders to deliver sustainable communities

Our ability to achieve valuable permissions on complex sites remains our fundamental proposition. Against a backdrop of an ever evolving and challenging planning environment, our team focuses on the opportunity to drive the agenda for new homes.

Residential Land Sales

Our strong capability and heritage in land sales and acquisitions, make us the ideal partner.

The valuing and selling of land can be a complicated process, sometimes with multiple landowners involved. We ensure the whole process from start to finish is orchestrated smoothly by our team of specialists who always guarantee the transaction is undertaken with integrity, intelligence and in the most professional way to suit individual needs.

Housebuilding Joint Ventures

We partner with some of the UK's finest house builders to deliver projects and schemes across the South of England.

We believe that the building and selling of new homes is an expertise and as such we chose our partners carefully.

Alliances we have with some of the UK’s leading house builders have existed for over a decade. These relationships are formed of mutual respect and trust, where we are fully aligned to deliver the best outcomes for all.

Having developed some of the best sites in Southern England through joint ventures and with a very strong pipeline of new opportunities coming forward year on year, we remain focused on ensuring our new houses become new homes.
