Thinking about the local plan
Our team has collaborated with local authorities across the country over many decades. Montare schemes are individually tailored to meet local needs, and we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver over and above minimum building regulations and affordable housing shares (see our Projects page for examples). We are also firm believers in bespoke Section 106 agreements as opposed to financial tariff-based policies.

Not only do we aim to respect the natural environment; we go out of our way to improve it. Rewilding, biodiversity and connectivity between wildlife areas and public rights of way are just some of the things we seek to improve. The environmental impact of our developments is not simply an afterthought - it is part of our vision from the very beginning.

We’ve been doing this long enough to understand the importance of public consultation.
