Residential & Commercial Development Opportunities

Since late 2007 we have  seen a dramatic fall in the number of new homes being bought to the market, principally due to lending constraints exacerbated by a complex and lengthy planning process. Despite this we principally operate in a region that remains highly sought after by a wide range of companies.

Since 2013 the Government has enabled the relaxation of  the planning system by the extension of Permitted Development Rights. This has enabled a change of use of offices to residential, for example, subject to certain qualifying factors.

We are able to introduce developers who purchase sites or buildings with or without consent.

We are also able to help land and property owners with the planning process, by either assembling a suitably qualified team to guide you through the planning process. Alternatively we can introduce a developer to purchase your property on an unconditional basis, whereby they would submit an application and be responsible for all the associated costs.

We shall be delighted to discuss any of our client`s requirements with you on a no obligation and confidential basis.
