  • How did you identify my land?
    Our land team are highly skilled at identifying pieces of land that have development and planning potential. Our process utilises ordinance survey mapping, land registry details combined with aerial photography mapping. If you have received one of our letters this means we consider that you may have land with development potential.
  • How do you work out the value of my land?
    We are able to offer and achieve the most competitive price for your land by using our extensive planning knowledge and experience to generate the highest and most realistic and achievable value for your land.
  • How long does it take to get planning?
    There really is no set answer to this question as it can be determined by a multiple of factors. A decision should be made within 8 weeks of planning validation for a minor application (1-9 units) or 3 months/12 weeks for a major application 10+ units. Planning appeals take significantly longer. The planning process can be very unpredictable, and can vary dependent on the council we are dealing with and the size and complexity of the development. Our team works closely with consultants and councils to satisfy planning needs in the area.
  • Can I have input into the design?
    Yes, our team prides itself in working closely with land owners to ensure you are happy with plans before they are submitted. We use our knowledge of the planning system to approach each site individually, designing with sustainability in mind.
  • Are there any costs to me as the land owner?
    No, we aim to make the process as smooth and plain sailing as possible. We will cover any reasonable solicitor fees.
  • What biodiversity enhancement systems do you use/propose?

  • What is a topographical survey?
    A topographical survey is an accurate depiction of a site (property, area of land, defined boundary) which is scaled and detailed to show all the natural and manmade features and their levels. Millen uses these surveys to help plan out the layout for a proposed development. The survey helps us plan for retention of trees, safe access into the highway and ensuring each Millen property can make the most of solar gains.
