UKLR Land Registers – 2018

If you’re looking for North of England Land or Development Opportunities in 2018 then make your first port of call the UKLR Land Register.  Whether you’re looking for a single plot, to build a dream home, larger land sites for multiple dwellings, (we have sites listed with potential for 1,300+) or just wanting a paddock for your pony then we probably have listed what you are looking for.
Currently covering the Yorkshire, Humber and North West regions the UKLR Land Register has over 1,200 Land and Development Opportunities listed. From 16 January 2018 the North East region will be launched providing blanket coverage for the whole of Northern England

What are UKLR Land Registers and what is their purpose?

UKLR Land Registers are comprehensive collections of Land and Development Opportunities on the market.  Simply put they are ‘Registers of Land and Development Opportunities for Sale’.

Available by county or region listings are sourced and collated from individuals, companies, and the public domain.
All entries are based on specifics, rather than narrative, providing essential details, eg type of opportunity, number of potential units, planning authority details, including planning application numbers and dates where available.
With information provided in a consistent format, from just one source, identifying potential projects is simplified, saving time, stress and ultimately money.


UKLR currently covers the nine counties of Yorkshire & Humber and North West regions. However, from 16 January 2018 we will be providing blanket coverage across the whole of Northern England when we add the three counties of the North East region

UKLR Land Registers are free to access at UKLR Bulletin level, with detailed UKLR Opportunity Reports available to purchase for a small fee.


With the government’s directive for more new build homes, aiming at 240,000 to be built per year from 2016, the demand for Land and Development Opportunities has increased and continues to increase.

However, the government isn’t just looking at new builds, but looking at councils to ensure empty and/or derelict buildings are utilised or redeveloped wherever possible. This has increased prospects to secure planning for redevelopment, bringing more potential properties for conversion to the market.

What hasn’t been addressed though, until Land & Development Opportunities Ltd started to tackle the issue in 2017, was how to provide a collective list of opportunities for individuals, companies and the construction industry to refer to from one site. This is where the UKLR Land Register came into being.

It is free for anyone to include Land and Development Opportunities for sale, so long as they meet our criteria

Win-Win – With UKLR

Win-Win Negotiations: Way of transforming them into reality

For decades, people have been talking about win-win negotiations, but this type of positive outcome has not always occurred in reality. Often, negotiations still involve an antagonistic approach, where one party has to lose in order for the other to win. A 2013 survey of market shows some encouraging news. It seems that more businesses are finally realizing that a positive, collaborative approach can yield better long term outcomes.

A shift towards a collaborative approach

More are more business executives are pursuing a collaborative, partnership-based approach to relationships with suppliers. This is a change from the older, aggressive approach where business people tried to drive the hardest possible deal, usually at the other party’s expense. Though there have been negotiators who took a win-win approach before, they were typically the exception, not the norm.

Old-style negotiations relied heavily on defensive, compliance-based contracts that featured negative incentives for non-performance. These contracts were designed to reduce risk for the buyer, and transfer that risk to the supplier. Today’s contracts are more balanced, and include positive incentives, shared responsibilities, and shared benefits. Businesses today recognize the need for innovation, flexibility and continuous improvement, and these are increasingly allowed for in contract negotiations.

The role of negotiators is beginning to change. Talented negotiators now are not just skilled in gaining an advantage over the other side. Now communication and facilitation skills are coming to the forefront and negotiators seek to build consensus with the other side, rather than just scoring points. They work on creating an environment of trust between business partners, where both sides can pursue shared objectives.

Reasons for the shifting style of negotiation

One of the reasons for this shift is that more negotiators are looking at the overall outcome and business bottom line, rather than just the parameters of an individual deal. With pressure to show profits and growth, they are realizing that developing relationships and partnerships can be more effective than maximizing the profits of each deal on its own. The success of a deal is no longer judged in isolation, when the contract is signed. Instead, a longer-term view recognizes the value of sustained relationships.

Another shift is that the buyer in a negotiation no longer always has the greater power. In some industries, such as mining, utilities, automotive, or oil and gas, the suppliers can have the upper hand. Shortages in supply, technology, and skilled labor can shift the balance of power. If the buyers want to be seen as a favored customer, then they need to take a different approach to negotiations.

A third factor that is driving this change is that contracts are more complex than ever before. No longer are cost, quality and time the only factors, as in the traditional view of a negotiation. Today, there are also concerns with sustainability, regulatory compliance, and reputation risk. There are many different stakeholders to consider, and agreements can be complex and difficult to arrange. Developing an on-going relationship with valued business partners can be more effective than handling each deal as a one-off negotiation.

Win-win negotiations – your ticket to success

Believe it or not, win-win negotiations come with a wealth of benefits. First of all, all parties involved are more relaxed when entering a meeting whose purpose is to reach mutual ground. However, just because the parties involved want to collaborate and create a relationship, this doesn’t mean they will agree to any offer. Mutual relations are excellent in business, as long as they can bring valuable benefits to all the parties involved in the negotiation.

Win-win negotiations can bring a lot of benefits to your business. Companies that want to make a name for themselves and get recognized should compromise more to reap benefits in the long term. Take all the time you need to make a decision, counter offer if you’re not feeling comfortable with a first offer, and be ready to argument your claims. Not every business individual is a skilled negotiator; yet, you can always opt for negotiation training sessions to perfect your abilities and master the techniques. Stick to your guns no matter what, maintain a professional attitude, and you will have great chances of reaching a mutual agreement with your opponents.

At a time when you probably most need money, raised by the sale of land or buildings, you find a huge chunk is lost through the exorbitant fees paid to sell. UKLR changes that, and puts you back in control at the minimal of costs.

In recent times many parishes and authorities have, through necessity, found themselves selling off parcels of land and/or buildings to raise much needed money.  I’m sure you have already encountered this trend, probably experienced it yourselves, and been staggered at the cost of fees incurred in the process.

To date there have been three main ways in which to find a buyer:

  • Newspaper advertising – at exorbitant rates, and to be effective needs repeating regularly
  • Through an estate agent, where the fee charged can make a large hole in the sale proceeds
  • By taking out membership to one of the main property sites – tied in as an organisation, at high monthly costs for a minimum term

All of the above absorb a substantial sum of money from the proceeds of a sale, at a time when those funds are needed most.  And none of the above actively seek out specialist buyers . . . at UKLR we do!

UKLR are pleased to announce an alternate, economical and effective solution for selling your Land and Development Opportunities.  Your can advertise directly on UKLR to get your properties onto a specialist internet site.  UKLR is the perfect, economical and effective alternative to consider.

  • £10 per month, or £100 per annum, plus vat, per listing, on a rolling contract. Advertising spaces are flexible and displayed permanently on the site.  UKLR is set up in such a way that an advertiser does not have to take out paid advertising space for every listing.  Once details are input into the UKLR system it is simple for the listings to be rotated, with only a certain number made live at a given time, keeping your advertising costs to a minimum
  • For a one-off lifetime fee of £250 plus vat: Lifetime listings are for an unlimited time until the land or property is sold.However, these are purchased for an individual listing and are not transferrable

UKLR is a bespoke site for specialist listings, Land and Development Opportunities. For UKLR‘s definition click here.  For each listing we provide:

  • In-depth information to each listing, and a generous gallery allowance for images and related documents
  • Extensive search criteria, making it simpler for buyers to find the project they are wanting
  • Additionally we use the sellers own contact details leaving you in control and direct contact with potential buyers, rather than allocating telephone numbers and email addresses
    • Alternatively you may opt to advertise under the UKLR banner if you require confidentiality.
