Adding Value with PFK Planning & Development

PFK is the only business of its kind in Cumbria to employ RTPI qualified Chartered Town Planners. Town Planners have the professional skills to understand complex legislation, to find solutions to difficult property-related challenges, to negotiate and advocate for good outcomes and project manage the planning process. This article will take a look at the ways in which we can add value to your property or land.

1. Enable you to make informed decisions when transacting on a property or land
Whether you are looking to sell or purchase property or land, you will need to know what it is worth so that can make informed decisions about your next steps. The planning potential of property and land is a significant consideration in its value. This is why our surveyors and valuers often ask for our professional judgement on the likelihood of achieving planning permission in particular locations.

We also assist our sales progression colleagues when unexpected issues arise during the conveyancing process. We have acted on behalf of vendors to solve problems relating to local occupancy conditions, agricultural ties, changes of use, the sub-division of dwellings, listed building consent and breaches of planning control.

2. Strategise and seek out long-term opportunities for your property or land
We have significant experience in tailoring a planning strategy to best meet our clients' goals. The planning potential of land can be limited by a range of constraints, i.e., access, flood risk, contamination, trees and landscape features and heritage assets. We frequently work with a range of consultants on these matters. Together we will come up with an effective strategy to overcome these constraints and enable development to come forward.

We also have extensive knowledge of the future aspirations of Local Planning Authorities and which locations may be earmarked for future development over the next 20 years. This, alongside our well-established working relationships with LPAs and developers, will enable us to promote your land through the most effective channel.

3. Co-ordinate the right team
Once we have identified the planning potential of a property or land and we have been instructed to act on your behalf, we may require specialist input from other consultants to effectively address the planning requirements. Depending on the scale or nature of your project it may require input from a traffic engineer, ecologist, architect, civil engineer or landscape architect. We have an established network of consultants suitable for different projects ready to refer to you as you require.
