We acquire land for development across London and the South East. Land may be purchased with planning permission but more frequently we work with land owners on a subject to planning basis. We assemble sites of all shapes and sizes and often involving several landowners.
Cleanslate has the skills and expertise to optimise developments and land value, whilst at the same time delivering schemes that meet local and national planning policy. We are very proud of our 100% success rate in achieving planning permissions.
We always aim to work constructively with planning authorities and use a range of carefully selected architects and designers to create exciting and yet sensitively designed solutions for each site.
What our architects say:
“Designing for Cleanslate has been an enjoyable experience. It is always good to have a positive, proactive and design driven client”
Nick Henley, Studio Henley Architects
“At Broadway Malyan we really enjoy working with Cleanslate. Brian, Mark and the team combine niche operator agility with corporate big thinking to bring some really interesting and diverse design led opportunities forward - Opportunities like Queens Rd Weybridge, a land owner collaboration where our own approach to "Creating places together" has been a key ingredient in the projects success. With a number of projects currently on the drawing board we look forward to many more successful collaborations - and of course many more chocolate bricks each Christmas!”
David Anderson, Director Broadway Malyan
“We have enjoyed a close working relationship with Cleanslate over the past five years. It is always a pleasure to work with people and companies who apply attention to detail and deliver quality and reputable products, as builder of fine homes and properties Cleanslate certainly fall into this category.”
Stuart Simpkins, Managing Director HP Architecture
Cleanslate has undertaken many successful joint ventures with both individual land owners and companies which can significantly improve the returns generated above that which is achieved by a conventional asset sale.
What our joint venture partners say:
“Realising that you can only sell your property once we were keen to maximise the return. Having received several strong bids for our site we realised the profit potential seen by others, so we decided to look for a joint venture partner to develop the site ourselves. Finding the team at Cleanslate has been a blessing and the enhanced return has exceeded our initial hopes. Thoroughly recommend the experience and it certainly has maximised our sale return!”
Richard Roberts, Managing Director Trident Garages Limited
“Having known Mark for many years I have found working with him and the team at Cleanslate straightforward and enjoyable. Their experience in planning and delivery has been invaluable to our joint venture.”
Bryan Hirst, Bryan Hirst Limited
Our flat management structure allows for the early involvement of all the key decision makers when buying land. You will be dealing with our Board directly rather than intermediate management levels and can therefore be assured that we will provide quick decisions that you can trust.
If you have a site to sell and would like to discuss how best to realise its potential then please contact our Land Director, Chris East on 01276 858038 or the land team at
