Sitematch London enables property developers to identify and meet the right people at councils and helps smaller developers access public-owned opportunity sites,
It also encourages councils to think commercially about land assets and develop new revenues.
By providing these services, we are helping stimulate development in London and aiding the government increase house building levels.
Sitematch London is organised by 3FoxInternational.
How it works
Each council provides “priority development sites” details which are posted on the site.
Developers are invited to browse. If they find a site or borough of interest, they can book a 15-minute meeting with the council at the next Sitematch London event.
The first event on 1 March 2012 at City Hall included 50 officers and members from 28 councils. During the day, 486 meetings took place betwee 166 developers and advisors, discussing 100 sites representing over 1,000ha of land.
100 per cent of councils and 96 per cent of developers said it would lead to further meetings and discussions.
94 per cent of councils and 89 per cent of developers said they discovered new developers or sites of interest
88 per cent of councils and 74 per cent of developers gained useful information that would have been difficult to obtain without Sitematch London. 75 per cent of councils and half of developers were even confident that Sitematch would lead directly to a deal.
