Strategic Development

Sworders specialise in strategic planning and we are actively involved in promoting sites for development through the Local Plan process ranging from small infill plots and edge of village schemes to large scale development schemes.

We advise landowners on strategic development matters throughout the country, combining our knowledge of planning policy at a national and local level with our commercial awareness.  We believe that Sworders lead the field in agreements that seek to protect the interests of landowners more robustly than a traditional option agreement.

We demonstrate a depth of experience in advising landowners in the conclusion of promotion, consortium, collaboration and hybrid agreements as well as conditional contracts, options, and joint ventures with developers, pension funds, private investors and property companies.

To ensure we always provide impartial advice, Sworders act only for landowners and do not accept introductory commission or conditional instructions from any development companies.
