Leading Leicestershire property agency releases record results after breaking £100m barrier

Fisher German has acted on the sale of a number of development sites in 2017, including one in Somerford, Cheshire, with planning permission for 170 dwellings which was sold to David Wilson Homes

A leading property agency has experienced a record year for the sale and acquisition of development sites – breaking the £100m barrier for the first time in its history.

Fisher German’s national planning and development team, based at the firm’s Ashby De La Zouch office, has released record results after advising on the sale and acquisition of multiple sites with a value in excess of £100m in 2017.

The sites, based across England, range from two to 160 acres and are capable of delivering more than 2,900 dwellings nationwide spanning across areas from Gloucestershire to Cheshire and Bedfordshire to Nottinghamshire.

The team is also continuing to advise on the promotion of land capable of delivering in excess of 27,000 dwellings as well as the promotion of more than 550,000 sq ft of retail floor space and more than 350 acres of employment land.

The firm’s national planning and development team was established in 2013 and has since seen considerable growth since then.

Planning experts provide services right through the planning process, from pre-application advice to support with planning appeals, while development professionals advise on the routes to maximising the value of land and property other than self-promotion.

Fisher German associate partner Luke Brafield, who specialises in development, has welcomed the results and said that they are looking ahead to another positive year.

He said: “We have been growing our team over the past five years and are very pleased to see our figures reflect this.

“It is incredible to break the £100m barrier, and this is testament to the expertise of the team that we currently have in place operating on a national basis with local coverage

“We have advised and gained planning permission on some very complex sites, many of which have been sold to high-profile national housebuilders.

“Looking ahead to 2018 we have a lot of projects that we are currently working on at the moment and are planning for another successful year.”
