Many people know a lot about property, far fewer recognise the true value and importance of land. As a result, one of his main aims for 2016 and onwards is to mentor, educate and train more people in the skills required to successfully acquire land, create value, win the best planning permissions and develop property. Paul Higgs also lecture in advanced development valuations at South Bank University. Every successful development begins with Land (preferably ‘Brownfield’) – Finding the right opportunities, structuring the best deals, adding value through excellent design and negotiating the very best planning consents. Paul Higgs specialise in understanding the system inside-out and knowing how to best leverage it – often partnering with land owners, other professionals, agents, deal sourcers or not-for-profit organisations (we love using our skills to help make good things happen). As well as continuing to develop award-winning properties himself, his goal is to make a real difference to the supply of good, well-designed housing in the UK by supporting people in realising their dreams as successful entrepreneurs, deal creators, property investors and developers, so Paul Higgs is now training and mentoring others to show anyone interested in making money from land and development how to identify and generate the best off-market opportunities, maximise planning value, raise capital, buy and develop themselves.
