About Us

Catesby Estates is a specialist strategic land promotion and infrastructure business, focusing on the delivery of residential planning consents on predominately greenfield sites, and their onward sale to housebuilders.

As land promoters we work with landowners to bring land to the market with planning consent for housing, in order to deliver much needed, high quality new homes.  During the process we also work closely with housebuilders, councils, local residents and community groups to deliver sites that benefit the local community.

Catesby Estates specialise in land promotion and are part of Urban&Civic plc, the leading master development business in the UK.  Together we either have consent, or are in the process of applying for sites which will deliver nearly 40,000 new homes in key growth locations.  Find out more about Urban&Civic plc.

In-house Expertise

Catesby Estates has three internal divisions focused on land, planning and technical delivery.

This in-house expertise and our policy of working in collaboration with landowners, councils and local stakeholders has built us a first class reputation for bring forward land with planning consent for new homes.


Technical & Environmental 

The technical and environmental constraints of development sites are considered in detail. Our team will survey the site and take into consideration possible issues such as; access, transport, drainage, and environmental implications using where necessary specialist consultants.

Our development proposals seek to respect the environmental constraints of the sites and enhance these wherever possible.

Planning Recommendations

We pride ourselves on our approach to planning, with the  majority of our land sites receiving Planning Officer recommendations for approval. We look to meet housing demand in areas of clearly identified need. 

This can be through promoting sites identified in existing or emerging local plans or where plans are out of date, identifying sites where demand for housing is high and submitting an application after extensive analysis and consultation.
