Land Assembly & Land Owner Engagement
Working collaboratively creates opportunity.
The objective of land assembly is to maximise upon sale, the value or financial return of identified land within potential development growth areas. The advantage of an “assembly strategy” is; land that has limited value as agricultural or individual land, gains increased worth via aggregation, formalisation and the establishment of a combined saleable development site.
Individual land owners and local government can both benefit from this type of development strategy. It requires vision, patience and a willingness to work collaboratively together to achieve a successful outcome for all stakeholders.
