Northern Trust Land

Northern Trust is one of the most successful and long-established land promoters in the country having been involved in planning and development for over 60 years.

We are a family owned and privately run company, established in 1962, and we take a very personable approach to our business. Many of the family work within different sectors of the business and ensure that the core family values are fostered and remain consistent throughout the company. Taking this personal approach allows us to fully understand our partners and establish the most efficient strategy for each individual. All of our projects are very much as a partnership, working collaboratively with our landowners, and we take great pride in that approach.

The dedicated strategic land team collaborates closely with landowners, viewing their relationship as a true partnership rather than a customer.  We guide landowners through every step of the planning and development process, taking pride in nurturing strong relationships with our partners alongside maximising the value of their land. This personable approach is central to our operations and underscores our ethos as a family-owned business.

Northern Trust Land has an impressive track record of achieving planning consents for its own and third party landowner's sites. The team has extensive experience of working with private and public landowners, which has included private individuals / families and organisations such as BP, Severn Trent Water, Associated British Foods and Zurich Assurance Ltd.

We are passionate about creating places where people want to live, delivering significant benefits that come with development and helping to deliver the homes the country needs. Delivering and facilitating growth has been a mainstay of the company and will remain so as we continue to evolve. 

We have the flexibility to consider site acquisitions on an unconditional or conditional basis, joint ventures and promotion agreements for both residential and commercial sites. If you are a landowner and want to maximise the value of your land either on a sale or promotional basis, then please contact a member of our team to discuss. 

Alongside strategic land, Northern Trust Company Ltd benefits from a commercial portfolio of circa 9 million sq ft of industrial, trade counter and office parks throughout the UK supporting over 25,000 jobs. This places us in a very strong financial position and with assets of circa £1 billion we have significant funds available for new acquisitions.
