DEVELOPMENT

We appreciate that the development and planning has become increasingly complicated over the recent years, and as such clients need practical and informative advice and a clear opinion on the commercial viability of a project, whether this is for a single plot all the way to 100 of acres and Strategic Land & Promotion.

We can provide a workable solution to inform an acquisition, improve the viability of a current development site or assist in obtaining a workable planning consent. Furthermore, by utilising our network of associates, when necessary, we can help a client to assess all aspects of the project; whether it is relating to a planning, technical, design or highways related matter. With the advent of CIL payments and the continuing issue of project viability, especially for many Brownfield sites, we fully recognise that commercial viability is a crucial component in the development sector and we aim to provide clear and concise reporting that fulfils the needs of the client, and provides a clear way forward. 

Working with landowners, developers, promoters, house builders and public bodies, our experts advise on the right new build, redevelopment or refurbishment strategies of varying sizes and uses from small infill developments to large scale urban extensions, brownfield regeneration, garden villages and new settlements

LAND

The key to this success is simple, we buy and sell development land – regardless of type/size or planning status – in a way that maximises the land value for our clients, and we’ve successfully sold sites where other agents have failed. The Land & Development team will carefully assess a site and then package the opportunity in a way that maximises the chances of selling it, which ensures that we obtain the best possible price. To achieve this, we carefully assess each and quickly identify the issues that need resolving in order to optimise the capital return. There are a number of different sale methods that we can utilise and we simply select the method that best fits the characteristics of the land;

  • Private Treaty Sale

  • Informal Tender

  • Formal Tender

  • Off-market Sale

  • Modern Method of Sale
