The assessment of financial viability of proposed development is often an essential component in the design, assessment and determination of applications. Our viability appraisals are carried out in accordance with appropriate recognised methodology which has developed through the process of precedents in planning appeals, judicial decisions and commercial experience. Our appraisals include the relevant up to date and local market information as well as industry wide recognised publications to produce robust conclusions that can be defended under cross-examination at Appeal if necessary.

Examples of viability appraisals undertaken by ourselves include:

  • Agricultural workers dwellings
  • The calculation of off-site commuted sums in lieu of on-site affordable housing provision
  • Development appraisals for the assessment of acquisitions, developments and disposals.

Our in-depth analysis and scenario planning ensures that you will understand all the financial implications of any decision.
