Development

We have been releasing land for development for over a decade through successful partnerships with both the public and private sectors to deliver for the railway and for Britain.

We release as much land for housing as possible, while actively working to enhance station and transport facilities to help regenerate local communities.

Developing with us

We’ve overseen billions of pounds of investment in Britain and have around 150 live schemes currently in operation. We’re working across the UK to deliver positive outcomes for housing, jobs and economic growth, including projects in London, the North and North West.

We are open for business and eager to work with ambitious development partners to realise our target of unlocking land for around 12,000 homes by 2020, to support the government’s housing goals.

We are also taking major steps that reflect our determination to meet these targets:

  • We are transforming our approaches and processes to make it easier than ever for developers to work with us.
  • We are accelerating the release of individual sites where we can work with the private sector to transform unused railway land.
  • We are introducing new multi-site land packages for housing development, designed to accelerate our land delivery programme and maximise value for developers.
