A new property consultancy has launched in Birmingham city centre.
Atlas Land & Planning is based in Cornwall Street and specialises in land procurement and development opportunities, working with landowners, investors, builders and developers in the city region.
It is being led by managing director Phil Roberts who has a decade of experience in the sector including spells with Fine and Country Land and New Homes.
Mr Roberts said: “The pandemic has brought many challenges to the development landscape, including furloughed staff causing delays in development or planning application progress, and a shortage of building materials causing a price hike and impacting profit margins, also exacerbated by Brexit.
“At the same time, as restrictions now ease, the development opportunities are soaring as land becomes available again.

“Land that was earmarked for office development is now likely to be repurposed for residential use while property such as disused office space as a result of the remote working scenario will also be ripe for redevelopment.
“Additionally, with the plans around HS2, city living will become a much more attractive prospect. There is also of course a real housing shortage and we work closely with providers of affordable housing.
“All of this is great news for developers and we think there is a rapidly growing appetite and that the market is set to accelerate again.”
Atlas is part of Birmingham-based ARMCo Group which offers services such as specialist lending, corporate support and insurance.
Founder Russell Martin added: “Atlas Land & Planning is a great addition to our group and significantly aids our clients who benefit from this central services approach.
“The opportunities in the property and development market are currently there to be capitalised on.”
