At Crest Nicholson Strategic Projects, planning is at the heart of everything we do.  From the moment we identify a prospective site for development, to achieving an implementable planning permission and delivering the vision, we leave nothing to chance.

It’s this meticulous planning that makes us industry leaders in bringing forward large scale schemes for development.  Working in partnership with landowners, local authorities and communities across the South of England to deliver high quality developments that meet local housing and infrastructure needs, we consider every aspect of the site, provide solutions to problems and unlock the land’s potential.

Working with local stakeholders every step of the way we create thoughtful, well designed schemes that meet the needs and aspirations of the communities they serve.  We successfully navigate each project through the planning process and build a community in which everyone can take pride. 
One of Crest’s key objectives with all large scale development projects is to ensure that there is a lasting legacy long after the last house has come out of the ground.  We view our developments as much more than simply bricks and mortar; the aim is to create a community.

Our strategic sites are planned and delivered to incorporate the very best of 21st Century Garden Village Principles. Through careful master planning we arrange streets, open spaces, landscaping and buildings to generate the look and feel of an established community and place. Our core focus on sustainable design ensures that it will remain as such for generations to come.
At Crest we recognise the benefits of delivering Community infrastructure early in our schemes.  The delivery of items such as schools, healthcare facilities, play areas, community halls and allotments enable us to create a community from the earliest stages of development.

Our track record of delivering high quality communities is reinforced by the fact that we have more “Building for life” Gold Standard Awards than any other developer.
