An integral part of the NextGen Groups business is the strategic acquisition of land in key UK cities and worldwide. This includes prime development land as well as high value strategic plots for future infrastructure and regeneration projects.

Over the last 35 years the NextGen Groups land banking drive has seen a very diverse and mixed spread of purchases including rural grazing land for the development of high quality livery and stabling to prime city centre plots for much needed car parking, hotels and leisure developments.

NextGen is focussed on using our land and planning expertise to identify and secure land development opportunities, to unlock potential and add value through the planning process.

NextGen Strategic Land will acquire freehold land outright for promotion through planning. We are able to purchase land unconditionally and then promote the land through planning.

Alternatively, we will enter into Option Agreements (OAs) or Planning Promotion Agreements (PPAs) with landowners, to promote the land through the planning system at our own cost and risk, whilst the landowner retains ownership of the land. This enables the landowner to keep possession of the land whilst we bring both our professional expertise and financial resources to negotiate a way through the planning system.

NextGen Strategic Land is currently progressing several residential sites through the Local Plan process in Cheshire and Staffordshire.

We are currently looking for residential sites across the country with the potential for at least 100 houses.

For all land acquisitions enquiries please contact our development team on 0843 289 6477.

Single Plots of Land

Does your property sit on a larger than average plot? A properties value is sometimes higher than a conventional sale, if there are possibilities of development, even if this is just for an additional dwelling.
If you’re unsure if your plot of land is suitable for development or perhaps you would like advice or a land valuation on a plot of land you own, please contact us.

Larger Plots of Land

Our database of medium to large developers look for substantial plots of land to build sizeable developments. Our Market research and marketing advice ensures your plot of land reaches the correct developers and ensures the best price is paid. We also work closely with land promotion companies to help secure planning on more challenging plots. Our land promotion partners can assist land owners with gaining development planning, so that the land value increases and is ready made for a developer to purchase.
If you think you may potentially have a plot of land suitable for development, now or in the future, there are plenty of options available and our Land and New Homes team are ready to assist. We are constantly looking for sites in all areas that have current and future development potential.

UK Residential Land Bank

Your Land Needs

If your company or organisation is seeking to acquire residential development land in the London & South East region over the next 12 months please let us know of your requirements by emailing us. We do however prefer to meet new clients in person and if you prefer that too please contact the office to set up an appointment with one of our Project Directors, particularly if you have an immediate land requirement.

Please note that we will only deal directly with actual bone fide development companies and organisations when it comes to introducing and sourcing land. Proof of your position in the marketplace is usually achieved by supplying your website details.

Land Sourcing

Residential land is the lifeblood of any development, housebuilding or construction company. A steady supply of quality land on a consistent basis ensures steady growth and profitability.

NextGen Land is an independently owned company that specialises in sourcing off market residential development land opportunities for over 350 funded and active clients.

Our aim is to provide our vetted clients with around 9,500 residential development plots a year to consider. We are constantly searching for land with residential planning permission (or pending planning permissions) and also strategic greenfield and brownfield sites which have future development potential. We work closely with our clients to find a site which is suitable and fits their specific land requirements in their chosen area.

Land Buying

NextGen Land has access to a constant stream of off-market plots of land which can be bought with or subject to outline or detailed planning consents. In our rolling land bank we are normally working on 2,500 identified development plots whilst bringing through new land for the future.

If you are looking for development opportunities in London and the South East region please email us at in the first instance. Please include a description of the location and size of the ideal site you are seeking to purchase.

We work on an introduction fee basis which is payable on legal completion by the buyer. Full details of any land we are handling can only made available to bone fide developers who either have a track record with us or have an existing website to prove their position in the marketplace.

Periodically we also offer a retainer service which is suitable for clients who have a consistent demand for a specific type of development land in a specific area. These types of arrangements ensure exclusive access to the land opportunities that we source to suit the client’s business model.

Land Disposal

Our core function is to confidentially introduce buyers to landowners at no charge to the landowner. We have over 350 residential developer clients in our client base, and this increases constantly.

Our developer clients are always seeking new land development opportunities to buy. With this number of buyers at our fingertips we are able to discreetly select a buyer who is ready willing and able to make the right offer and who can offer proof of funding too.

Our client base ranges from small house builders through to most of the nationally known developers quoted on the stock market. Our contacts are predominantly at Director level and they have been well established over many years on the basis of trust. All of them have one thing in common though…in certain “off market” circumstances they are prepared to make very good offers sometimes above the perceived market value.

Furthermore we will find a buyer for the landowner free of charge; it is our developer clients who will pay our fees for sourcing the land. So if you are thinking of selling your land please call Karl Timberlake, Simon Kight or Kevin Woodall for an informal chat.

Terra Firma Land also buys land in conjunction with our trusted joint venture development partners; UK development companies and UK and Overseas high net worth individuals. We are fully funded and will consider both unconditional and subject to planning deals.

Prestige Ultra Luxury High-End Homes

Taking property marketing to the next level.

Are you someone with a high value property, looking to appeal to the lucrative London, Leeds, Manchester market or you simply want your property to stand out in a competitive marketplace, then NextGen Prestige Homes can help elevate your property to another level.

The world of estate agency has evolved. There are now more routes to market than ever before and the good news is that NextGen has evolved with it and our Prestige Homes service provides a solution that can and will present your property in its best light.

Prepare to be moved.
NextGen recognise the individual needs of both the buyer and seller. We realise that no two people or properties are ever the same and that each client that deals with us whether buying or selling a property should be treated individually. Our prestige properties often require different marketing strategies from town houses and apartments in order to be marketed to their full potential. This is why we have offices strategically situated in both local towns and villages.

Distinguished, knowledgeable and experienced.
By working closely with all of the Partners and Directors across the NextGen group and its extended network the ‘Prestige Homes’ offering is able to offer a combination of both distinctive local and national advertising, coupled with an honest, reliable and proactive approach. Distinguished in this role with years of experience, NextGen and their colleagues have been responsible for successfully selling many of the area’s most prestigious and expensive properties. To ensure you and your potential buyers have consistency of service from beginning to end you will be provided with a dedicated NextGen director throughout the entire process. You will be provided with sincere expert advice, a highly professional and most importantly personal service without the need for vacuous platitudes which are so often found among estate agent spiel.

Exquisite multi award winning marketing with captivating attention to detail.
Many properties require a marketing strategy that takes into account specific elements likely to appeal to a minority group of buyers. As the pioneer of property films in Surrey we will create a bespoke film of your property so that it can be viewed ‘virtually’ by prospective buyers at any time or presented, by us, to those who represent ideal candidates for buying your property.

The level of marketing and details we provide speak for themselves and are recognised by buyers and sellers to be amongst the very best produced in the industry. We offer inspiring professional photography including aerial, elevated, twilight and lifestyle shots. This coupled with our award-winning property films allows us to be distinctive and prominent in the Surrey Prestige market.

Individual ‘Coffee Table’ property details brochures, exclusively created for your property and beautifully printed to the highest of standards
Unique NextGen Property Films & Drone Tours – A personal video of your property, shot in stunning Ultra HD 4K resolution and edited to music by our production team, viewable virtually by prospective buyers at any time. The use of drones now allows us capture footage over and above anything previously possible in estate agency.

This innovative approach to marketing allows us to elevate your details and truly show your property in its best light. This has been proven and endorsed not only by the amount of properties we have successfully sold between £1m and £6m over the course of the past 4-5 years, but more importantly by enabling us to sell properties previously unsold by other agents. A higher level of marketing that has enabled us to find and introduce purchasers our competitors had simply not been able to.
