Sometimes strategic land development is necessary. There is a shortage of homes in the UK and the government is increasing efforts to develop more affordable housing. To achieve this, plots of land need to be bought and prepared for development to ensure the development is accessible and meets planning requirements.

This may mean there may need to be roads built to connect the plot of land with public roads, water pipes may need to be laid or electricity posts added so that the future homes can be fully functional. Oftentimes the development requires work such as levelling out the surface, removing trees and preparing the soil for foundations. Strategic land engineers would survey the site and establish what needs to be done in order to prepare the land for development.
