Site finding filters

Our comprehensive suite of site-finding filters enables you to find viable opportunities based on your property requirement. With Nimbus it’s easy to find viable opportunities, anywhere.


How it works

Our advanced site-finding filters enable you to identify opportunities that match your property requirement, anywhere.

  • Set the filters so that they align with your property requirement.
  • Filter by site characteristics, including, site size, density, use, ownership type and much more.
  • Exclude properties based on their planning constraints, including flooding, listed building status and much more.
Site finding size

Site characteristics

Our advanced filters save you time by only showing you land and buildings of the right size, use class, property size, density and EPC rating that suit your property requirement.

Site characteristics

Low density sites

Identify under-developed opportunities using the site coverage filter to target properties where there is scope for additional site development.

Site coverage-1

Ownership type

Target opportunities by searching for properties owned by a corporate entity. Use this to search for residential properties owned by companies as investments or to exclude development opportunities owned by councils where they will need to demonstrate "best value" on any sale, and more.

Ownership category

Planning constraints

Refine your search further by excluding properties that flood or are listed, in the green belt, AONB or SSSI.

planning contraints


Search by EPC rating to target opportunities where the owner may have problems letting their property due to the poor energy efficiency of the building.

EPC rating

Expiring leases

Refine your search to only show properties where the lease is coming to the end of its term indicating that the owner may therefore be more inclined to sell.
