• Previously aiming for 1 million new homes to be built over the next 20 years, the

Government has since announced that the real target is in fact 3.5 million new homes. This news has fuelled speculation that

a further release of greenbelt and greenfield land is unavoidable
• It is this housing crisis that has driven up the cost

of land dramatically and with an ever increasing population relying on a finite resource, this trend is set to continue

Land values across the UK over the past 20 years have seen consistent rises totalling over 926% (source BBC) with no signs of

slowing. As land is a scarce and tangible asset, it is less likely to reflect the collapse in value that stocks and shares

have experienced over recent cycles. Given all of this information many well informed clients are now choosing land over

other investment opportunities.

• For short to medium term capital growth, up to 10 fold returns

have been achieved on land that has been given planning consent for housing development
• It is a low risk purchase as

land does not deteriorate and is unlikely to depreciate
• Land prices are being forced up due to the scarcity of

residential land
• National affordable housing shortages dictate that large areas of undeveloped land will be potentially

allocated for development
• The demand for new and affordable housing far outweighs supply and the Government has

announced actions enabling much needed development to take place
• The Government plans to build over 3.5 million new

homes over the next 20 years ¬ with up to 52% of these being on green field sites. (Source ODPM)
• The Royal Institute of

Chartered Surveyors, states - overall land prices rose by up to 30% in the 12 months to November 2004
• Land is a finite

resource and with an ever-increasing population both its demand and value continue to grow. The scarcer the commodity the

more valuable it becomes.
