Since forming in 1999, Landmark has built a reputation for honesty, helpfulness and above all performance. Whether it’s agreeing and completing on a site in 48 hours, or organising a tenant for a ‘Buy to Let’ purchaser, we do “Exactly what it says on the tin!” Operating throughout the South Coast and London, our dedicated team ensures a first rate service to our purchasers, tenants and those involved in selling us land. Being flexible and reactive at Landmark, allows us to work on a rich variety of projects, as can been seen by our developments page, which range from acquiring redundant high street properties, achieving planning on major sea front developments to refurbishing a single house. Unlike many other development companies, we don’t just achieve the planning, but follow through building out the scheme and finally selling or renting the finished units. Our tightly knit team, led by James Bradley, use their broad thinking and professionalism to achieve rapid planning consents, and whether it is a small garden plot or a bar/restaurant scheme, we use the same vigor and determination to succeed.
Landmark is headed by James Bradley, who took control of the business in 2007 from his architect father, Roger. With a wealth of knowledge and experience in acquiring land and developing both residential and commercial schemes, the company has had a busy few years forging ahead. Not just known for residential schemes, Landmark is expanding its commercial sector and with close ties to a number of national operators, combined with our flexibility and reaction time, this is now a key area of focus.
In 2012 our expansion on the personnel front brought the key appointment of respected residential land expert, Iain Coates. Iain’s vast experience as a land agent, after many years with a well-known regional agency, followed by several years working with a Town Planning Practice, gives him a sharp edge in ensuring his projects reach a successful and expedient planning conclusion.
In March 2014 we welcomed James Helmsley back to the Landmark team. Finding ourselves regularly working with London agents and with more business opportunities being offered within the Capital it was only natural that we should open a London office with the goal of acquiring and developing land within West and South West London. After graduating from UCL with a degree in Construction Management he went on to work in the City for a year before moving to a residential development firm based in West London. He’s now back with Landmark after 5 years away and is excited about the future of our London venture. He will be working with James Bradley who himself has many years’ experience and contacts within the London market.
Also joining the South Coast team is Ben Olds. With nine years in the industry Ben has become a respected property professional, his knowledge and drive means he is now an integral part of Landmark. Ben will be working alongside James Bradley and Iain Coates securing residential and commercial sites within Hampshire and the surrounding counties.
Philip Holdcroft joins the team, as Planning Manager (June 2017). As a Chartered Town Planner and Member of the Urban Design Group, he has more than 19 years’ experience in both the public and private sectors, relating to a full range of development projects and land use issues. Previously working as an Associate Director at Savills, Philip has a proven track record in delivering complex projects, securing planning approvals and coordinating multi-disciplinary teams.
Philip is looking forward to the challenge of providing technical input, overseeing Landmark’s portfolio of planning applications and maintaining key client relationships.
