Residential Planning and Development

GL Hearn’s expertise in housing encompass strategic, financial, operational and development-related consultancy. We have a proven track record in the delivery of housing, ranging from small residential schemes to larger more complex mixed-use developments, and the longer-term promotion of strategic land sites.

Our UK-wide team provides national coverage, helping to deliver the housing programme the UK needs. We offer solutions to meet every need and our unique partnership approach, working with the public and private sector partners, is key to our success and the continued success of our clients.

Our aim is to create communities, not just buildings. We do more than deliver projects, we focus on being a strategic client partner, implementing solutions that lead to transformation and extend beyond bricks and mortar to create communities where people want to live, work, play and visit.

Our team knows the challenges of an ever-changing market and the micro and macro challenges faced by clients. We provide the complete housing solution, helping to find new ways to transform services and develop approaches that respond directly to current market conditions as well as future-proofing for the longer-term.

Within the private sector, we understand the commercial landscape facing clients looking to develop Build to Rent, student accommodation, and private residential developments. From the increasing costs of buying and securing land to optimising the whole lifecycle of a property asset, we can help clients overcome these challenges.
