Development and Planning

Cushman & Wakefield’s Development and Planning team helps clients to plan and deliver some of the UK’s most high profile and strategic development projects. We are also trusted, long term advisers to clients on projects which are fundamental to transforming local economic, social and physical landscapes. Regardless of the scale of the project, we have a relentless focus on delivery.

Our national team advises on all aspects of the development process from project inception through to delivery on the ground.
