"Having had contracts with other developers in the past, we were keen to understand how Gladman’s approach to land promotion differentiated from others when they first contacted us regarding our landholding in Balerno. Gladman’s knowledge and experience in this field was immediately apparent and their understanding and awareness of the planning context in this location was both impressive and assuring. It was also clear that Gladman’s proposed terms for a Promotion Agreement gave us the highest chance of realising best value for the land over a relatively short period.

We have absolutely no regrets about entering into a contract with Gladman. From the point they first submitted for planning, it took Gladman only 18 months to secure planning permission for residential development on our land, after they successfully appealed to the Scottish Government. Gladman has acted professionally and kept us well informed throughout the whole process and we would wholeheartedly endorse Gladman as expert land promoters."

The Mitchells Landowners at Balerno, Edinburgh

“Gladman Scotland approached us regarding our 17 acre land holding and we were impressed with their track record in obtaining residential planning consents elsewhere and their enthusiasm for promoting our land. After discussion with our Land Agent we entered into a short Promotion Agreement which outlined Gladman’s responsibilities and obligations in terms of promoting our land and submitting an early planning application. Through regular contact between Gladman and our Agent we have always been made aware of progress which has included the land being allocated in the Council’s Main Issues Report as a preferred new housing opportunity as well as obtaining planning permission in principle at appeal for 120 houses. The whole process from appointing Gladman to promote our land up until the appeal decision took less than 18 months which is testament to their hard work, expertise and commitment to achieving a very successful result. We would have no hesitation in recommending Gladman Scotland to other landowners seeking to have their land promoted in a professional and very thorough manner.”

“Strutt & Parker were instructed to help our clients chose an appropriate partner to promote their land holding resulting in our completing a relatively straight forward Promotion Agreement with Gladman Scotland. Throughout the process Gladman demonstrated a high degree of professionalism in their approach to achieving an allocation in the emerging Local Development Plan and securing a Planning Permission in Principle at Appeal. We held regular update meetings with Gladman to agree mutually agreeable planning strategies and we were impressed with the attention to detail and commitment shown by Gladman which resulted in a very successful conclusion.”

‘We purchased a 87 unit site in Eliburn, Livingston from Gladman in 2014 in order to build private market and affordable homes. The team at Gladman displayed superb professional standards throughout the site acquisition and planning process. In partnership, we secured our planning consents quickly and Gladman provided a serviced site timeously in an honest and open manner. Building on this strong relationship, we continue to work with Gladman to deliver more housing across Scotland

"I have now worked with Gladman on a number of projects, and have found that all of their people are experienced and resourceful, in providing considered, reliable advice at all stages, to ensure that their clients and projects are guided through the planning process with minimal delays. Not only do they behave with the utmost integrity & professionalism, but they also work hard at maintaining good relationships with their consultants as well as their clients."
