A property or land planning appraisal is an important stage in the delivery of a successful development scheme. A planning appraisal sets out the planning background to a site and identifies all opportunities and constraints to inform a view on a site’s development potential.

An appraisal can flag up issues affecting a site allowing these to be addressed early on in the planning process. The assessment of a site’s planning potential will also include an evaluation of risk and at Batcheller Monkhouse we will always provide an honest opinion on the likelihood of obtaining planning permission.

Our planning appraisals can save our clients both time and money and ensure the optimum scheme is presented at the application stage.

If you are considering selling your property or land our planning appraisals can also be a useful accompaniment to a marketing pack, helping prospective purchasers understand the development potential that exists.
