Planning and Development

Development and Diversification

Forge Property Consultants offer a free initial consultation to assess the potential for development and diversification. We can then guide you through the complete process through feasibility, valuation, planning and managing the construction and marketing. Additionally we maintain good relationships with a number of developers who are looking for development opportunities.

Planning applications

Through experience gained by working closely with many planning authorities, we have a very good understanding of the subtleties involved with securing planning consent for a wide range of proposals. Previous instructions include successful applications for a new 18:36 herringbone dairy parlour with slurry lagoon and cubicle shed, to a biomass storage shed, and consent for traditional buildings to be developed into a holiday let, farm office and residential flat. We have also developed close working relations with a Solar developer, with projects ranging from a 2000 panel roof mounted system to larger ground mounted schemes.

Property Promotion

The promotion of land through the planning framework can be a very effective method of securing a premium sale value. We will analyse each site independently and suggest a number of possible schemes for both green field and brown field sites and, if appropriate, guide you through the planning process. You can also benefit from our links with development companies looking for strategic sites.
