Selling land for development in Hertfordshire

Looking to sell your land in Hertfordshire? We specialise in buying unused and underappreciated land and making something amazing out of it.

If you’re a landowner looking to realise cash from your plot, or simply want to see your surplus land put to good use, selling land to a developer like Cairnpark Properties could be the perfect solution for you.

Our dedicated team of property development professionals have in-depth knowledge and extensive experience in seeing the true potential of any plot of land. We're passionate about finding promising potential development opportunities and realising returns for land owners across Hertfordshire.

Types of land you can sell to a developer

If you’re thinking of selling land for development in Hertfordshire but you’re not sure if your plot is suitable, speak to the Cairnpark Properties team today. As long as the land is legally yours, you can sell it to us either with or without planning permission from your local authority.

We specialise in buying land and resolving any difficult planning problems ourselves after the purchase. If you’re thinking of selling your land to a developer, we consider a wide variety of plots including:

Greenfield sites

This is untouched land which has never been used. In most cases, greenfield land is found on the boundary of a development or within a particularly built up area.

Pooling our considerable expertise and experience, we find innovative solutions to common hurdles such as previous planning refusals and particularly complex projects in sensitive locations like the Green Belt.

The Green Belt is a large greenfield site which covers the majority of Hertfordshire with strict regulations stating that this land must be kept open and undeveloped. Although tricky, it is possible to obtain planning permission for green belt land for an experienced developer.

If you are finding it impossible to get consent to build on your land in the Hertfordshire green belt area yourself, by selling land to a developer like Cairnpark you could make a considerable profit from your unused plot.

Greenfield sites

Brownfield sites

We also buy brownfield land for our future developments. These are areas that have previously been used for development but have since been abandoned. Derelict and disused areas such as brownfield sites can be reimagined by a skilled developer by breathing life and purpose back into the land.

If you have an unused plot, selling land for development means it will not go to waste. This could involve splitting underutilised existing buildings into multiple new homes, or simply restoring derelict areas to improve the urban environment. Not only will you make a profit from selling land to a developer, but you can also get personal satisfaction from the fact that your local area will benefit from such improvements.

If you’re interested in selling land for development and want an idea of the price a buyer will pay for your brownfield land in Hertfordshire, contact Cairnpark Properties.

Brownfield sites

Contaminated land

As brownfield sites are those which have previously been developed, it is fairly common for these areas to become contaminated by building materials and other substances.

This is most common in the land which may have previously been used as a factory, mine, steel mill, refinery or landfill; however, any brownfield land could be classed as contaminated by your local council.

You can expect problems if you wished to develop a contaminated land yourself. After you've sold your land to Cairnpark, our expert team of developers will work alongside specialist reclamation companies to remedy the problems and make your land suitable for future development.

With us, your previously contaminated brownfield site could be successfully transformed to serve a wide range of alternative uses, including residential, commercial and retail purposes. This way, your unused and underutilised land will go on to profit both you and your local community. If you’re interested in selling contaminated land for development but are worried about the price you might get, please get in touch.
