Land Adoption

Providing a dedicated service in Land Management.

We provide a dedicated resource to initiate, negotiate, and pursue land adoption through to completion.

The cost of maintaining open space is rarely budgeted for. This significant cost comes straight off the bottom line of the development budget.  James Blake Associates can significantly reduce your workload, monitor, inspect and arrange for remedial works, liaise with Local Authority and water companies, liaise with your contractors and project manage any construction.  JBA can also offer remedial works to ensure the adoption process is made as smooth and effortless as possible.

We are experienced in dealing with Section 106 Planning Agreements, Section 38 Highway Agreements and Section 104 Water Industry Act Agreements. This can save you time, money and effort – better spend on new development sites.

When pursuing adoption, house builders take on a considerable burden consisting of numerous peripheral issues that detract from the business of building and selling dwellings.  However, if these areas of residual land are not given the time and effort from a specialist resource, they can cause problems, delays, and increased costs.

Making use of our adoption service can fast track the adoption process and introduce other adoption options such as OASIS, JBA’s Land Adoption Management company.  OASIS can provide a comparative quote to either secure a better adoption option or negotiate a lower price with the LPA.

  • All types of land adoption and planning agreements
