If you are looking for help with your Gross Development Value (GDV) we have access to data that can take some of the risk out of development (although nothing is of course certain as there would not be a reward if it was).

Permitted Development

We cannot provide specifics here as Permitted Development is a moving target with the Planning rules changing and developing over time together with associated Case Law this also has to be in consideration of local conditions as well.


Prior Approval

We always say that this is printed in black and white and interpreted in grey although in theory it should be straightforward you have to know what you are doing and the best way to carry it out so those that are looking to use Prior Approval will ensure that they do not ruin the development by not getting expert help and advice.
