Baker Estates

Land & Planning


Our expert planning team has the skills and knowledge to tackle the most challenging land opportunities. We are regularly looking for new land, with or without planning permission, throughout the southwest. We also welcome discussions regarding joint ventures with commercial partners or landowners.



To deliver exceptional developments we know that it is crucial to properly consult communities and to work together. We endeavour to proactively reach out to residents, businesses, local organisations and other key members of the community to understand their aspirations for a given site. We encourage feedback, which is then carefully considered and, where possible and appropriate, incorporated into our proposals before the submission of a planning application.

We are skilled at working closely with local planning authorities and have years of experience of working alongside councils to deliver outstanding developments that local communities can be proud of.

This collaborative approach to consultation ensures constant communication with all stakeholders, at every stage of the consultation process.

Impact on the environment and local ecology is also of great importance to us, and we ensure all planning and development protocols are strictly adhered to, before, during and after construction.

We have been very impressed with Baker Estates’ straightforward and honest approach to doing business. Their professional team is easy to deal with and they have acted exactly as they said they would, working to timelines with exacting detail. It’s been a pleasure to work together and I’m sure they will bring forward an exciting collection of new homes at this fantastic site in Seaton.

It was a pleasure to visit Great Court Farm, I was very much impressed with the quality of the homes, the architectural design and space. It is rare to be able to visit developments and see for myself the results of the decisions that are made throughout the planning process. It is very encouraging to see the development coming together and I look forward visiting again over the coming months.

The quality of construction and attention to detail in the show home was evident and the range of property designs and use of traditional materials fits in well with the location and local architecture. The positive working relationship developed with Baker Estates at Great Court Farm will deliver Teign Housing’s first homes located outside of Teignbridge in the South Hams, providing much needed affordable housing for local people

Baker Estates have been working in conjunction with Malborough Parish Council for over three years now. From the very beginning of our relationship with them we have found them to be considerate of the needs of the parish in which they are working. They have consulted well with both the Parish Council and the residents and they have regularly attended our meetings to provide updates and discuss any potential issues. We would like to thank Ian, Graham and the team and we are grateful to Baker Estates for all their efforts to create something fitting for our parish.
