#nu are dedicated to appraising the viability of housing developments to assess affordable housing and other s106 contributions the development can support and negotiate s106 agreements with Local Authorities.
Most new planning applications now require a viability assessment; we provide responsively and commercially focused service-producing viability appraisals and reports on supporting planning applications.
We have provided viability assessments on developments across the country, from single houses on garden sites to significant multi-phase residential and mixed-use developments. In numerous places, we have reduced and removed planning obligations to unviable stalled sites to come forward and contribute to housing delivery, negotiating directly with council’s, the District Valuer and other viability professionals.
