Our Multi Channel Approach

The Partnerships and Strategic Land (PSL) division is responsible for both sourcing land and developing partnership arrangements. Their Strategic Land team are experienced in managing and promoting strategic land to bring these sites through to our short-term land portfolio. The other responsibility of this division is to develop strategic relationships with the public sector, Private Rented Sector (PRS) and Registered Providers.


We have a well-located land portfolio which provides us with flexibility in how we choose to develop it. Our short-term land portfolio represents approximately five years’ worth of supply which we consider to be appropriate for our needs. Most of these sites can be delivered by utilising our standard housetype range and some are well suited to development for partners who we work closely with to realise value for both parties.

PSL secure and coordinate the promotion of longer term strategic land, and coordinate key stakeholder relationships such as with Homes England and housing associations. PSL also look to secure joint venture opportunities, where land is acquired to be developed in collaboration.

Working in Partnership

How we work in Partnership: Arborfield Green, Wokingham, Berkshire

In 2013, Crest Nicholson was appointed as Development Manager on behalf of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) to manage and deliver the Arborfield Green development near Wokingham.

We manage the outline planning, s106 and design codes for the development, maintaining overall control of the site and monitoring the timing of home delivery.

Two phases of Private Rented Sector homes have been developed in partnership with M&G Real Estate.

In addition, 35 affordable homes have been delivered in partnership with Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing

The partnership has enabled a broad mix of homes to be delivered while maintaining a consistently high quality of build and designs which are sympathetic to the local style.

"The redevelopment of the former Arborfield Garrison has proven to be one of the most successful and fastest delivery of all Wokingham Borough Council’s (WBC) current strategic Development locations. This has been largely down to the teamwork and close working relationship between WBC officers and Crest Nicholson"
