Land supply remains at a record low, but growing demand sees land values edge higher
The average price of land increased by 3% last year. The amount of land coming onto the market remains at an all-time low. This record low level of supply continues to underpin the growing demand for land, a trend which is expected to continue in 2021.
Lifestyle and amenity land has been particularly sought after as Covid-19 increased the desire for more green space.
Demand from private investors and lifestyle buyers has grown and together they have accounted for 40% of land purchases in the last three years. There has also been an increased number of overseas buyers as the pound remains relatively weak.
With bank interest rates remaining low, land continues to be seen as a safe, long-term investment – particularly during times of economic uncertainty.

Grantham is a market town within the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire that lies to the south of Lincoln and east of Nottingham. The town has a substantial infrastructure and commuter element to support its large and expanding population. It is home to a wide range of local amenities that are easily accessible from the site including numerous shops, a post office, grammar schools and colleges as well as the Grantham & District Hospital.
The district of South Kesteven is the second largest in Lincolnshire. The A1 passes through it as does the East Coast Main Line. Both of these contribute to house prices in the area, which are the highest in the county. This has led to the district as a whole having one of the fastest-growing housing markets in the whole country.

The city of Nottingham can be quickly and easily reached by road or rail and is the seventh largest urban area in the UK; home to the headquarters of many large and well known companies. Nottingham is progressively changing from an industrial city to one based largely in the service sector. It has one of the highest GDP per capita in the country and in 2007 was fifth in the retail shopping league of England. There are two main shopping centres in Nottingham and numerous smaller shopping areas in development. These new developments will increase the shopping sales area by 28%. Tourism is becoming an increasingly significant part of the area’s economy with many visitors attracted by its nightlife, shops and history. This has led to Nottingham being touted by DK Travel as one of the Top 10 cities in the world to visit.
Nearby Peterborough has expanded greatly to help house London’s overspill. It continues to see significant growth and a £1 billion redevelopment of the city centre and surrounding areas is underway. The city is currently experiencing an economic boom compared to the rest of the UK, believed in part to be due to this regeneration plan.
