Tesni Homes

Land

In addition to developing our own homes we also have an impressive track record as a highly skilled land promoter.


To speak with a member of our team, please contact us.

Our specialist team of land and planning experts work in partnership with landowners to bring forward land to the market with residential planning consent.

We lead a trusted network of planning and development advisors. Together, Tesni uses its expertise and financial resources to fund the promotion of your land working in conjunction with Local Authorities own planning strategy.

Once planning permission has been achieved the site is then sold for the highest possible return.

The landowner is consulted during the whole process and our return is based on a pre-agreed spilt of the sales proceeds.

Here are some of current and past projects that demonstrate our success.
