We can help if you:


  • are looking for guidance on choosing suitable locations to for a particular development:    

  • want an evaluation of the development potential of your land: or

  • want an appraisal of your development proposal before you proceed to a planning application.


To assess the most suitable use for the site or to advise you on whether the proposed use would be acceptable to the local authority, we will assess the site's location, constraints, adjoining uses, and how it fits with the local authority’s planning policies.  Any written reports will provide an honest evaluation on the likelihood of obtaining planning permission, identify if further investigations or information may be needed in support of a planning application (e.g. , studies on flood risk, contamination highways impact, ecological impact) and will advise on how best to proceed.  


If you do not wish to develop land now, or planning policies do not support your proposal at this time but you are keen to realise the development potential of your land, we can also advise you on whether you are likely to be successful in making a case to the planning authority for the inclusion of the site in future land allocations plan.

Site appraisals can be tailored to your needs from a simple desktop appraisal to meetings with local authority and site visits.
