MCR Acquisition Requirements
Our principal activity is the identification, acquisition and promotion of residential and industrial land through the planning system.
Using our in-depth knowledge of both the planning system and the development sector, we are able to unlock, maximise and deliver the development potential of land, ranging from small urban infill locations through to large scale sustainable urban extensions.
In our role as either owner or option / promotion partner, MCR leads multi-disciplinary teams to tackle complex challenges and unlock planning solutions. MCR will acquire freehold land outright for promotion through planning. We are able to purchase land unconditionally and then promote the land through planning. Alternatively, we will enter into Option Agreements (OAs) or Planning Promotion Agreements (PPAs) with landowners, to promote the land through the planning system at our own cost and risk, whilst the landowner retains ownership of the land. This enables the landowner to keep possession of the land whilst we bring both our professional expertise and financial resources to negotiate a way through the planning system.
