Planning and Development

Planning and development is definitely an area on which you should seek expert advice. Whether you’re planning to maximise the potential from your property or perhaps develop an existing use, then expert advice on the planning process will be vitally important to you.


Alasdair Morrison & Partners are highly experienced in all aspects of the planning and development process.


Planning and development expertise


Personally headed by Alasdair Morrison this innovative service can help land owners achieve maximum value of their property; whether it is a single building plot or a full scale housing development, we can advise on valuation, tax planning, preparation and submission of planning application.


Once planning has been successfully obtained we can advise on the best method of disposal in order to maximise the capital value of the site.


We also act for many prominent local, regional and national house builders, chosen not only for our experience in sales and marketing but also for our understanding of specific land requirements.


If you think you may have land or property that could achieve added value through the planning process then contact us and arrange an appointment to meet a Chartered Surveyor.


We can also provide clients with feasibility studies right through to setting up Option Agreements with developers.


Planning Applications

We regularly provide initial advice on planning applications and alternative uses for land and property. As such we are able to assimilate the often complicated information required to assess the viability of a planning and development project at a strategic level.


Our Chartered Surveyors are used to critically assessing proposals put before them and, in partnership with our clients, we are able to:


  • Consider a site and its alternative uses
  •  Review the prevailing planning guidance as part of a desk top review
  • Hold pre-application discussions with planning officers to assess their views at an early stage
  • Liaise with specialists, as might be necessary, in advance of a submission of a planning application
