About us

DBS are specialists in new homes, residential construction, planning and promotion of development projects, and management of development schemes throughout the South East.

Development specialists

Development Projects

We provide site acquisition services to our clients, identifying potential land for development, negotiating acquisition terms and contracts, and engaging professional teams for planning applications. We work with a select group of clients for all kinds of residential development.

Residential Construction

Our professional construction team is made up of construction managers and specialist sub-contractors, some of whom have worked with us since we began building homes in 1987. Sites are supervised for quality on a daily basis and all new homes have a New Home Warranty for additional security.

New Homes

We have been building quality new homes in Kent, Surrey, and South East London for more than 30 years. Our homes are thoughtfully designed with high specifications and the latest insulation requirements for energy efficiency. We have always secured sites for our homes in prime locations and are always pleased to discuss potential development opportunities.

Promotion Agreements

DBS acts on behalf of the site owners to promote and obtain planning permission for a development. Once planning permission is obtained, the site is sold to the best bidder. DBS return is by way of a pre-agreed split of the sale price. The costs of promoting a site for planning permission are reports, plans, surveys, and investigations from a number of consultants. There is also the risk that the planning permission is not granted.

DBS meet these costs under a promotion agreement.
