A Winning Formula

Our success rate speaks for itself

A proven record

We have a 100% planning success rate and can back up our credentials with a range of fully-completed schemes.

Being part of the wider Russells group, with an award-winning housebuilder and one of the region’s leading Main Contractors, further demonstrates our ability to deliver. This provides landowners, local authorities and investors reassurance that planning approvals will translate into positive development.


When when we take on a site we are fully committed to achieving its potential and will pursue all avenues to deliver a successful outcome for every stakeholder involved.

A collaborative approach

We work collaboratively with key stakeholders and local planning authorities to find mutually beneficial solutions, rather than creating conflict and working in opposition. This can involve formal partnerships and joint ventures with private landowners, public bodies, other developers and community stakeholders.

A vision for the future

We are passionate about creating well-rounded and sustainable places, and believe our role serves a local and national interest of delivering much needed housing and employment, as outlined in the government’s own ‘levelling-up’ agenda.

The Rochdale Development Agency has worked in partnership with Russell LDP on the South Heywood Regeneration Scheme for over 10 years. Russell LDP has been an invaluable private sector partner through all stages of this regionally important project, from feasibility through to inception and now delivery, including leading on land assembly and securing the planning permissions. We have found the Russell LDP team to be engaging, pro-active and solution focussed in managing this hugely significant urban regeneration project with Rochdale Council.
