Our land

The HCA, as landowner and enabling partner, works to unlock and increase the supply of publicly-owned land for commercial, housing and community-led development. Locally-backed development boosts economic activity and provides new homes and new jobs.

As a landowner, the HCA owns just over 10,000 ha of land, including:

  • The economic assets transferred from the Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) in September 2011
  • The coalfields sites transferred from the RDAs in July 2011
  • The remaining Commission for New Towns portfolio
  • A collection of former hospital sites and land transferred from other public sector landowners
  • Other elements of the former English Partnerships portfolio – mostly urban and brownfield sites
  • Liabilities transferred from other bodies that have been wound-up.

We update a detailed list of all our land and property assets in March and September each year.

In July 2014 we published our  Land development and disposal plan, July 2014 update - PDF (675KB). This plan sets out how we will use our land to accelerate economic activity in support of local development priorities. It also lists, by Operating Area, the sites to be brought forward for development, as an indicative pipeline for the remainder of the Spending Review Period.

Delivery Partner Panel

Our Delivery Partner Panel (DPP2) provides a one stop shop for a wide range of public sector bodies who want to procure a house builder, contractor or development consortia; the panel forms part of the integrated approach the HCA is taking to make best use of public land.

Land and development opportunities

Sites will be disposed of and developers procured through a combination of the Delivery Partner Panel, site specific OJEU and traditional disposal methods. Details of our current land and development opportunities are available.
