About Fuel Properties

Fuel Properties was set up in early 2018 with the aim of acquiring urban land, buildings and brownfield sites within the United Kingdom.

We choose sites that have been identified as under-utilised and/or derelict, and design a process to implement urban regeneration and redevelopment projects that encompass residential-led mixed use, commercial, office, retail or industrial. Importantly, Fuel creates these development solutions whilst taking into account what's best for both the site and the community.

The Fuel team have been working collaboratively for over 25 years and will be involved throughout the planning process.  With our extensive planning experience we will be able to promptly resolve any complex issues to ensure the planning consents are workable and matters concerning remediation are identified and implemented.
