Land Suitability Checklist

A lot of sites will only have a few constraints, but by taking a careful approach you will head- up any potential issues of the land quickly and avoid the expensive mistake of falling in love with a site that will cost a lot of money to develop.

By checking these things you will be more certain you can create your project and form a more accurate budget.

If there is anything you are unsure about, get further advice. You can speak to your local authority about planning matters, ask your solicitor for legal advice or get in touch with us about design advice for the land and other specialists you can talk to.

You can also look at planning applications for similar projects that have been granted permission nearby using the council’s online records. This might highlight potential stumbling blocks or show how others have dealt with them.

To find your Local Authority’s planning applications online look for “search for applications online”.
