Expert legal advice for your strategic land and development plans

Land and development solicitors - Your real estate experts

‘Strategic land’ usually refers to land that has future development potential. It is invariably land that has not been allocated by the local planning authority for future development, but which has the potential for such development.

We act for a range of clients in relation to strategic land matters including housebuilders, landowners and promoters and we have considerable experience in dealing with a wide variety of structures designed to bring forward the future development of strategic land.

J B, Melksham

Very helpful, efficient friendly staff. My business matter was dealt with very well. I would be happy to recommend Goughs Solicitors.

Goughs provides an equally high level of service regardless of the scale of the job and the fee attached to it. They are a multi-disciplinary practice where the individual specialists communicate well between departments.

Richard Newman

I had previously dealt with Goughs Solicitors in the sale of property for both organisations. I felt the service had been efficient and friendly so decided to instruct Goughs with the sale of my own property. Gemma & Hollie kept matters simple and easy for me to understand, kept me informed throughout in a friendly and efficient manner.
