Given the ever-changing planning environment, our in-house Planning team are experts in promoting land and property for development. With an acute understanding of risk and value, we provide honest and reliable advice ensuring our clients make the right decisions and get the best deal at every stage of the process.
The publication of the National Planning Policy Framework in 2018 and the recent widening of the Permitted Development Rights, has created a planning environment which means that there are excellent opportunities for the promotion of development sites of all sizes.
With Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) becoming more positive towards sustainable development proposals, we are starting to see a reverse of the supply/demand imbalance which has persisted for many years.
These changes could result in a squeeze on development land values so, landowners who think their land is suitable for development should seek expert advice immediately, not only as to the most appropriate method but, perhaps more importantly, on the timescales for the land to be promoted through the planning system. This will ensure both planning prospects and value through appropriate timing, are maximised.
Very careful consideration should be given by landowners as to the route they take to promote the land. There are option agreements, promotion agreements and the choice to self-finance the planning process. Each route has its own positives and negatives, and each carries a very different risk/reward profile.
We can advise landowners as to which tailored route best suits their individual circumstances. We undertake detailed negotiations with our extensive contact base of developers and promoters to ensure the best terms possible are obtained.
As land experts, we are regularly involved in advising on the development potential on a variety of sites throughout the region. We have significant areas of future development under our care as a result of our proactive, dynamic and knowledgeable approach.
If you believe that your land has the potential for development contact our team of experts who will be happy to fully appraise your site.
