Danescroft Land

Danescroft was originally established by David Civil in 1997 and invested in by Palmer Capital in 1999.

The financial and management support of Palmer Capital has enabled Danescroft to undertake larger and more complex projects incorporating both commercial and residential uses.

Focused on residential and mixed use opportunities in Greater London and the South-East, Danescroft has established a considerable track record in acquiring sites unconditionally and negotiating complex planning consents, and has particular expertise in working with landowners, local authorities and stakeholder groups to maximise the development potential and value of a site. Danescroft has an open and straightforward approach to doing business and is proud of its reputation for honesty, professionalism and performance.
