Land & Planning

Strong reputation. Strong relationships.

Without Land & Planning, our projects wouldn’t get off the ground. They’re the people who acquire us suitable land for new developments. This team also works closely with other parts of the business to create our award-winning developments.

Each of our divisional offices has its own team of land buyers, who use their local knowledge to assess and secure us new plots at a competitive price. Each division is also home to a planning team who are responsible for maintaining our land bank. Sometimes the land will not have planning permission; in these situations, the team will work with our lawyers and technical teams to apply for planning consent. They also analyse our objectives and make strategic decisions about what to do with the land at our disposal.

It’s a dynamic area that will see you playing a pivotal role in Redrow’s growth. You’ll also enjoy real variety in your work and collaborate regularly with our sales, build and technical teams. But perhaps most pleasing of all, you’ll enjoy all the advantages that come from our industry reputation. You’ll be able to build stronger relationships with landowners because they’ll trust you to deliver the right legacy for their land. Likewise, the Redrow brand will also enhance your relationships with agents, customers and contractors.

  • That’s the beauty of Redrow. There are so many opportunities to develop and grow.
    Matthew – Land Manager

    Our People

    matthew Davies 2Matthew works for the Redrow South West Division. He joined us in 2013, having completed a degree in Human Geography at Plymouth University.

    “Land & Planning is a stimulating place to work. In my current role, I’m involved in identifying sites for potential development, appraising them to establish land values, negotiating deals with both landowners and agents, and presenting ideas at consultation events. It’s a busy, fast-moving role but I’m never bored; the variety of the challenges keeps me on my toes.

    “For me, the most challenging aspect of my role is analysing sites from a planning perspective. Because my degree was in Human Geography, I had little exposure to planning during my time at university. My team, though, are seeking to redress the balance. In the next few months I’ll be shadowing other members of the team closely to establish a greater understanding of the planning system.

    “That’s the beauty of Redrow. There are so many opportunities to develop and grow. Even though I’m still a relatively new member of the team here, I’ve already had training in land appraisal, negotiation and presentation — and I’ve got plenty more ahead.”

  • I joined as a graduate trainee, progressed to Land Director; and now Regional Director - Redrow recognises hard work and dedication.
    Lee – Managing Director

    Our People


    During his career with Redrow, Lee has progressed from a graduate trainee to become South West Managing Director.
    In his new role Lee says he “enjoys the varied nature of the role and the ability to immediately make a genuine impact. The most challenging aspect is continuously looking ahead and anticipating issues. This is especially important at the moment in order to combat trade and material shortages”.

    “Redrow is fair and  forward thinking and it’s flat management structure means it can quickly adapt to change”.

    “I am proud to drive around our completed developments and know that not only have we built quality homes where families enjoy living but also knowing that we have achieved this the right way. Building in a safe and efficient manner and wherever possible using local labour and materials and making a real investment into the communities where we develop.”

  • Redrow stood out for me because they were a housebuilder with a great reputation. They’re known for quality and have some well-known developments here in the North West.
    Paul – Senior Planning Manager

    Our People

    Paul works for our North West Division. He studied Urban Studies and Planning at Sheffield University and joined our Land & Planning team in 2013.

    “How we as a nation can provide housing that meets the country’s needs has always been something that fascinates me. That’s why I chose the degree that I did. It seemed a logical step therefore to pursue a career where I would be involved in these issues on a regular basis. Redrow stood out for me because they were a housebuilder with a great reputation. They’re known for quality and have some well-known developments here in the North West.

    “The role itself has surprised me. Before joining, I imagined I would be focusing purely on the administrative side of the planning process – reading and writing the supporting documents for applications, and so on. However, since joining I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how involved I’ve been in the land acquisition process. I particularly enjoy conducting searches for new sites and being part of the land purchase negotiations. There’s a nice balance between being in and out of the office and you get to meet new people on almost a daily basis.”
