We Are A Not-For-Profit Organisation That Represents Members Specialising In Land Promotion And Development

As a federation we are working together to help shape national and local policy on issues affecting land promoters and the sector as a whole

We are bringing the voice of an underrepresented part of the planning process into the housing debate and highlighting the expertise of land promoters when it comes to bringing forward the land critical for housing.
