development & development land advice

Our experts are able to identify development potential for a broad range of end uses when assessing the potential for landowners, developers and occupiers, on country estates, mixed holdings, smallholdings or at private residential properties.

We can advise on:

  • greenfield development potential assessments
  • conversion of rural buildings
  • hope value
  • renewable energy/heat potential
  • agricultural dwellings (temporary & permanent)

Whether you need to achieve planning permission prior to the sale of a building plot, or would prefer to take on a development or restoration project yourself, our experts are on hand to provide advice tailored to your needs.

We are particularly experienced in assisting agricultural clients in barn conversions to full residential or holiday letting use, as well as advising on permitted development rights for agriculture.

Once the potential is identified, our planning team can help you realise it by working closely with you and the Local Planning Authority to ensure that projects succeed, both from a design and economic perspective. Our broad range of professional services can be drawn upon, as well as our property agency department who can then market the final development for sale or rental purposes if necessary.
