Tract is building the platform for planning.
We believe that housing is the largest domestic political problem that
the United Kingdom faces, and that the planning system is the biggest
barrier to solving it.
Our software allows developers, land promoters, and planning
consultants to source appropriate sites, develop plans, and work the
plan through the planning process.

things that don't scale.
We are going to build one million homes in the next ten years.
Our first product is a sourcing tool to help find plots of land with
favourable planning characteristics. Users search and filter through
sites in a fast and beautiful UI, over data enriched with planning
information such as access issues, planning constraints, and
suitability on the basis of local plans and design codes.
Our theory of change: vis-a-vis planning, not all sites are created
equal. If developers and land buyers can find and triage sites easier,
they can fill the top of the funnel faster.
