We are problem solvers. We understand development viability and how to quantify affordable housing need and market housing demand.
We are housing and development specialists and unique because not only do we have 15 years experience of negotiating planning consents, (some of which will result in some of the largest developments in Europe), we also finance, build and manage affordable housing.
In other words, we are not just theorists, we are practitioners.
If you have a development scheme that is required to make contributions towards affordable housing, s106 contributions or CIL payments we can help you with this.
No other planning or housing consultancy offers this access to such specialist knowledge and experience.
We will de-risk your development and help your decision making by assessing the likely cost of providing affordable housing and other planning obligations, to ensure profitability but making sure it complies to all planning and housing policies.
We will evaluate a suitable mix of market and affordable housing, interrogating data to determine housing type, tenure and affordability of the affordable housing. We will help you present your proposal in the best light and support your planning negotiations to ensure a planning consent is achieved with clear responsibilities set out in your planning agreement.
We are unlocking stalled projects for land owners, investors, developers, Registered Providers and Councils, securing planning consents and identifying end users for the affordable housing who are willing to pay the best price to ensure scheme viability.
