Development is part of our DNA at Howard Kennedy. We help with the entire process from site acquisition and funding through to disposal and asset management.

Property development requires knowledge of real estate, construction, environmental, and planning law, while also thinking commercially about what suits your needs as a business. We can do this for you.

Issues facing developers are diverse: from planning, rights to light and competition for sites to social impact, changing legislation and Community Infrastructure Levy. Our specialist team helps you address all of these issues whether your scheme is large scale urban regeneration, mixed-use, commercial, or residential.

Our experienced Development team combines straightforward legal advice along with pragmatic commercial solutions to achieve your development goals. Whatever your specific requirements, we're here to help you realise your objectives and deliver your development.
