WHO WE ARE
Edenstone Land – The experts in delivering strategic land opportunities
Edenstone Land is a specific division within the Edenstone Group tasked with delivering short and medium term strategic land opportunities either for the three group companies (Edenstone Homes, Bluebell Homes or Ashgrove Partnerships), or for sale on the open market.
The highly experienced professional team of chartered surveyors, solicitors, planners, project managers and architects have a long track record of delivering complex projects across South Wales and the South West of England.
Their expertise gives them an in-depth understanding of even the most challenging planning, legal and technical issues and helps in charting a course through the often highly complex planning process.
This in-house capability enables quick decision-making and the ability to have a single-minded focus on driving projects forward effectively to deliver successful results.

We are constantly looking for new opportunities so if you have land which may be of interest, then please get in touch with Edenstone Land
We have established, strong relationships with numerous landowners, land agents, solicitors, planners and other consultants across South Wales and the South West of England.

HOW WE WORK
With years of expertise in navigating the planning process to promote and create successful residential developments, choosing to partner with Edenstone Land is an easy decision for many landowners and agents.
As part of a privately owned company we are able to be highly flexible in our approach and can tailor a deal structure to suit individual requirements. Typically these could be either conditional contracts, options, promotion agreements, build licences or joint venture arrangements.
With new development opportunities, the process starts with our Design Director, Rob Hammonds, creating a bespoke master plan, sympathetically designed to complement the surroundings whilst addressing any constraints present on the land.
Our strategy is usually to work with the relevant planning authorities and engage with them at an early stage to try and resolve issues. We have built up excellent working relationships over a number of years with key stakeholders and our reputation for building a high quality, well designed product stands us apart from our competitors.
We recognise, however that this does not always resolve all issues and that sometimes an appeal is required to achieve the right result. Our Planning Director, Tim Smale and our Legal Director, Helen Thomas, have years of experience in running successful planning appeals.
Meet the team
Edenstone Land is a strong team of individuals with a range of experience and skills
We received consistently informative communication throughout the entire process and during the build we were very grateful that the disruption to local residents was minimised as much as possible. The completed site is well built using quality materials and has improved the area aesthetically and in terms of safety for both pedestrians and road users alike.
Acting for landowners I have exchanged numerous small and large sites with Edenstone and find their approach to land buying uncomplicated. Their use of in-house expertise leads to quick response times.
I’ve introduced a number of opportunities to Edenstone over the years and have always found them very straightforward and honest to deal with. There is nothing more frustrating than being messed around, but Edenstone do what they say they are going to do which is refreshing and is exactly what a land agent wants.
We sold some land to Edenstone for development recently. They have been consistently helpful and efficient before, during and after the sale, and their development is looking excellent
My family have been working on various developments with Edenstone since its very early days and we have always found them highly professional, approachable and fair. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
I’ve worked with Edenstone on a number of projects and have been highly impressed with the professionalism and speed at which they work. They have a very capable in-house team and this means that they can move projects forward at pace. Their internal Board approval process is straightforward and swift, with decisions made within a matter of days, rather than weeks and months.
Our first land sale to Edenstone Homes was made extremely easy by their ability to negotiate and agree all aspects of a transaction without reference to a hierarchical structure and once the basis of the transaction was agreed legal documentation was completed quickly. The benefits of dealing with a private company should not be underestimated in this regard and look forward to making further sales to them in future.
