  1. Bolton seems to be place as a chinese investment company is going rebuild the whole town centre with a 1B investment http://www.constructionenquirer.com/2018/08/24/chinese-contractor-to-lead-1bn-bolton-regeneration/
  2. Hi Phil thanks for your message The plan is to start a developer led custom build project whereby we put planning in place across a number of various site in a specific location Each site will be different in number and design but all part of the scheme So for example you may have a site with only four houses and another may have 20 obviously priced accordingly however these places will be great to live in and have a community space where neighbours can do things together such as celebrate a royal wedding or watch England or an annual barbecue yard sale etc etc - the main thing is that there is a community space if you want to use it As with most custom build sites the plots will have a design code and say three layouts - the buyer chooses their plot, then has time to select their house type and then layout and finishes (not too many choices but enough to differentiate themselves) we then build the development out - they can opt for self finish which is everything internal to get a taste of self building - the key is everything is built out to a professional timetable and no static caravans on any site. In my town Diss we have access to potentially 11 sites over the next five years so that is where we are planning the first Custom build but once we have the model we will be able to roll it out anywhere or even provide the format for other developers/landowners as a service For the immediate straight forward build then sell model we currently have access to two sites in Diss which we are now reviewing the option upon -1 acre and 0.4 acre which are opposite each other on edge of village location and should expect to get 5 detached houses on 1 and 3 on the other. total GDV 3.5M this is on a straight forward option agreement. Secondly we have access to another site near norwich where the first phase will be 9/10 passive houses that deal the landowner is putting up the land GDV of 4M and similarly with another great location south of Norwich landowner wants to put land in and this will have potential for another 2 or three phases 9 large detached homes where buyers can select interior modelling to suit lifestyle first phase has GDV of 6M I've been pleasantly surprised as landowners are hearing about what we are trying to do and offering land as a JV - but we need to get these off the ground first! Whats your background/story? Cheers Lee
  3. Hi Hugo Don't know if your still looking but personally i would look to try to grow your pot of cash by spreading around a few lower and varied investments such as a new build, a renovation and a HMO through a property crowdfunding site or such - that way you can see which performs better and if the HMO does well then you can re-evaluate the plan and hopefully with more initial cash.
  4. Hi All New to the forum and wanted to say hi I'm moving into new build developments for the first time, following many years in various construction businesses. i have a real passion that the buyer should be able to have a house that they can live very comfortably via space and low ongoing costs - due to lack of choices the buyers seem to forget their dreams and aspirations -unfortunately ending up with an identikit home the same as next door. So that is our mission is to provide - more choice - better design - cheap to run and healthy to live in Cheers Lee
