Inland, which specialises in buying brown field sites and enhances their value by obtaining planning permission before selling consented land onto developers, advises that negotiations with a house builder regarding the sale of an area at Drayton Garden Village with consent for 88 apartments, which was referred to in its most recent interim results announcement, have been ended at Inland's instigation.  The Company is confident that it will secure a purchaser for this land and confirms that it is already in discussions with a number of interested parties.

About Inland:

Inland identifies brownfield land in the South East of England with excellent potential for residential and mixed use development including commercial space. Inland then enhances the land value by applying its expertise to obtain planning permission and subsequently sells the consented land onto house builders. Inland's current portfolio consists of 8 sites with a total of 1,600 residential plots of which 1,165 are consented and 296,000 sq. ft of commercial space of which 156,000 sq. ft. is consented. Inland's strategy is to secure larger sites alongside joint venture partners. Land disposals are core to fund operations and realise the value of existing sites. The Company also develops a small part of large sites and constructs the infrastructure so as to provide serviced sites to house builders and create an attractive environment.
