Seeking the right partner or developer to help you achieve the best result is crucial. With the financial muscle to buy land and buildings immediately or via conditional arrangements we possess undoubted credentials to not only secure planning but to successfully build out a scheme.
We are constantly seeking land or property opportunities and would welcome speaking with agents, land owners, corporations and funds regarding:
Land with or without planning consent
Potential longer-term strategic or edge-of-settlement opportunities
Income-producing or part-income-producing investments
Joint ventures or partnership arrangements
Cash available for fast transactions
We specialise in securing housing allocations through Local Plan reviews and Neighbourhood Planning, working with local people and communities towards an end product that everyone can be proud of. This has always been the T A Fisher way – using our talented team’s expertise to maximise the potential of Strategic sites for the communities they serve.
Land is a long-term game
Promoting Strategic Land on the edge of a settlement can sometimes be a long journey, but you have our assurance that we will support your aims and objectives every step of the way. We value working alongside Neighbourhood Plan groups, Parish Councils and Local Planning Authorities to achieve common goals.
T A Fisher has achieved considerable success in promoting land through the planning system. Our partners benefit from our team’s in-depth local knowledge and connections, which provides a great platform from which to participate in the promotion of future-development land.
Some land promoters strive to achieve planning and then sell on to a plc developer. T A Fisher adopts a different approach by genuinely sticking to our promises of building out the scheme. We are immensely proud to be “different” and flattered that partners and local residents tell us that they would rather have T A Fisher houses than anyone else’s!
BROWNFIELD OR PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED LAND
Our extensive experience of repurposing redundant commercial sites – converting offices and period buildings to residential and mixed-use schemes – results in developments that transform them into places that sit proudly in their local environment.
Reviving and repurposing land and property
Development land is scarce in the South East, which is why a green policy of recycling/repurposing Brownfield sites (and older properties, such as listed buildings) offers a pragmatic and sustainable method of delivering new schemes. T A Fisher believe in a positive approach that, where possible, retains buildings with character that may form the cornerstone of a development.
If an existing building is listed or protected and needs to be retained as part of a wider development project, we welcome the opportunity to embrace it within our schemes. Numerous T A Fisher projects have adopted this sympathetic approach over the years, featuring conversions, restorations or remodelling of much-loved buildings.
Reviving and repurposing land and property requires an experienced hand to achieve the best results. We specialise in land without planning permission and have extensive expertise in resolving difficult planning and technical problems, especially for sites with previous planning refusals.
WHY WORK WITH T A FISHER
The difference between succeeding and failing to achieve planning permission so often depends on which house builder or development partner you decide to work with. As specialists in this arena, our exceptional team will quickly establish the most advantageous planning route that will optimise the return for all stakeholders.
Established Since 1895
T A Fisher’s established position within the property development world adds true value to the projects we work on. We are one of the few specialists able to cover residential, commercial, mixed use, regeneration, property investment and serviced apartments / aparthotels. Flexibility can be key so our inherent breadth of knowledge and understanding of different markets assists in positioning us on a different level to other developers, which can add real value to a particular project.
We invest locally
Our Head Office is based in Reading so we know the Thames Valley market inside and out. Investing in the local economy is really important to us and the role we play as part of a wider contribution to playing our part in improving the built environment. A key aspect of our work includes, wherever possible, engaging local professional consultants, local trades people, sourcing materials from local suppliers and in many cases we sell to local buyers who might be moving to their second or third T A Fisher home.
An impressive track record
T A Fisher is a name you can trust because our credibility is tried and tested. We have built our reputation, in part, by working with the communities where our projects are based to deliver schemes that enhance and benefit each location. As a private company we are also able to tailor individual transactions to suit particular land ownerships and future aspirations.
The company’s completed gallery of housing schemes is diverse, extensive, and impressive. Our experience from working with local communities helps significantly in discussions with planning authorities and members of each community for the projects we are involved with. We do not build standard house types; our preferred approach is to design schemes that not only respect the local vernacular but suit each setting and local environment.
Quality & Versatility
We are renowned for building to a higher standard than mainstream house builders. Our materials tend to be better quality and our tradespeople tend to take more care, while our schemes are designed to be more accommodating with the key objective of achieving the best build quality for buyers, residents and occupiers.
Although housing is our central core of activity we are also comfortable and experienced in complementary commercial uses; this is an additional T A Fisher strength that applies to mixed-use sites combining different components such as retail, hotel, aparthotel, children’s day nurseries, etc. Short decision-making lines enable us to structure proposals conditionally or unconditionally to give vendors the degree of certainty they want.
