Development Site Appraisals

The first step when assessing any development project both small and large is looking into what can be feasibly achieved. This is one of our more popular services particularly with residential property developers. If you own a commercial property that you are looking to expand or change its use, or are interested in a potential development site, but are unsure of what can be achieved and ultimately its financial viability our planning appraisal may be a good place to start. Our genuine and honest approach to development, provide a very good indication of the development possibilities and gives a realistic view of how the project would materialise with the local authority during an application and ultimately if the development makes financial sense. Our appraisal reports include: planning history of the site, review of site constraints and relevant planning policies, what is achievable, sketch proposals if required and an estimate of the end value.
In the event that you carry on appointing us to pursue a recommended development proposal following a planning appraisal of your site the fee for the development appraisal is naturally deducted.
