Additional 4 per cent of public sector land identified to help meet government targets for housing delivery.
Newly released Land Registry data suggests that the public sector owns significantly more land than previously estimated. At least 900,000 hectares - 6 per cent of all land - in England and Wales is in public ownership according to a new report commissioned by Telereal Trillium, carried out by Savills research.
In ’Delivering New Homes on Surplus Public Sector Land, Accelerating Delivery’, the report focuses on what public sector landowners are doing to accelerate the identification of surplus land, while finding the skills and capacity to bring forward a fast growing pipeline of sites. We review the options for engagement with the private sector, including sale, partnerships, and direct development, and how to find the most effective routes.
