Welcome to Banks Property

Banks Property has over 30 years’ experience developing land in the north of England and Scotland, to provide high quality, much-needed homes for people in the places that they want to live. As part of our development with care approach, we prioritise working with communities and key community leaders, from a very early stage, to ensure our projects deliver significant social, economic and environmental benefits in the areas that we work.

Our in-house property team has secured planning permission for around 10,000 homes and continues to contribute to meeting the increasing housing need in the UK. Please see our property project page for more details on individual projects.
