Land sought for development in Shropshire 

Telford and Wrekin Council have recently announced a ‘Call for Sites’ – an invitation to submit land for development for various purposes within their future Local Plan. They are seeking sites typically larger than 0.25 hectares but will consider any suitable site of any size and these sites can be undeveloped, occupied, vacant or derelict land.

Whilst the Council are calling for sites suitable to cover all development types: including residential, commercial, retail, leisure and renewable energy, they have a specific interest in prioritising employment land.

This is an opportunity and exercise that happens every 5 years, with this Call for Sites used to inform the Council’s planning policy for the next 10-15 years. Submissions are being accepted up until summer 2020, but as with most things ‘the sooner the better’ in submitting potential sites and there is no maximum number of sites any one person can submit.

We invite all landowners to get in touch with us to help you identify suitable sites, determine any constraints and undertake a technical assessment in terms of their suitability, viability and achievability. Halls Planning Department has a good working relationship with Telford and Wrekin and will manage every step of the process, from submitting sites, preparing plans and subsequent promotional work.  

You should also be aware that if you have land suitable for development and don’t wish to fund the promotion or application process, there are developers or promoters who are willing to fund it themselves. Halls can negotiate Option or Promotion Agreements on your behalf.

For more information and comments please call Shaun Jones on 07989 741 709 or Ollie Thomas on 07561 333876.
