Understanding the risks of Land-Led Schemes
On the 24th of March Andrew and Chris were joined by Steve Trenwith and Steve Aleppo from Sovereign HA. 5 years ago Sovereign were delivering 1500 homes per year via Section 106. To improve the value for money, the board made the decision to begin their own land-led schemes. We discussed Sovereign’s journey and learnings, followed by a Q&A with John Stevens and Duncan Smith.
Key points we covered:
- Risk/Reward: land-led vs. Section 106
- Critical-to-success factors in land-led development
- Lessons learned
- Common pitfalls

If you’re a Local Authority that has decided you want to start doing housing delivery for yourself, you’re going to need the right delivery team in place. You may have existing staff with related skills, but if you haven’t directly delivered any housing for a few years, it’s highly likely that those in-house staff will struggle to get up to speed confidently and competently without a lot of support.
