Property developers and development land
We undertake settlements or line diversions for property developers of all scales. If you have a single plot of land with planning permission or several acres of land for large industrial or residential development that is affected by the presence of pylons or wooden poles, please give us a call. Smaller lines can be diverted and substantial six or even seven figure compensation settlements are available in some instances with development land if the electricity line is to remain in place.
An example of a recent settlement for a housing development was for a row of six town houses in a commuter village north east of London. A National Grid electricity line crossed through the middle of this site. Whilst the cables didn’t prevent the built development from being maximised, a settlement in excess of £200,000 was obtained for the impact on re-sale value.
Another example was for a development plot for two detached family dwellings. The cables crossed along the side of the plot, just within the boundaries and compensation in excess of £35,000 was offered.
