Delivering on Agreements

Consistently Delivering on Agreements

The planning system is very complex and despite periodic reform, will remain so. Navigating a path through this labyrinth from strategic land to planning permission is expensive, risky, uncertain and requires an expert and experienced hand at the helm.

Robert Hitchins has successfully promoted land through the system for over 60 years and we understand that the decision facing a landowner in choosing the right partner to be responsible for achieving planning permission is paramount.

Our track record has few equals and our reputation has been built on success and fairness.

The Opportunity

Land is an indispensable component for development to take place and whilst there is plenty of it, there is a shortage of planning permissions. This is what gives permission land its enhanced value.
We will consider land opportunities be they short, medium, or long term and we will appraise the development potential of land promptly and honestly.
