Viability is a key factor determining whether development proceeds or not. Striking the right balance between delivering much needed housing numbers and a scheme’s ability to viably contribute towards justifiable planning obligations is crucial for any development.
The provision of rounded and robust viability advice to local planning authorities requires detailed knowledge of the development market, development costs and margins as well as development appraisal, strong valuation skills and experience of specialist property types.
We have a specialist viability team covering the South East, South West and East and West Midlands.
How we can help you:
- Provide meaningful viability advice for development schemes of all sizes including urban extensions and new settlements
- Assist the case officer in negotiating a planning package with the applicant
- Provide valuation advice in respect of emerging planning policy
We regularly act for a number of local planning authorities providing detailed reviews of the applicant’s case on viability and have, when necessary, represented the Council up to and at appeal.
