The PFK Development Process
Step 1: Identifying Development Opportunities


Whether you have a large garden, own land that could form a land assembly with other neighbours, own agricultural or commercial premises or land on ‘edge of settlement’,  there are many options open to you – and our land and planning specialists can help you maximise the value of your asset.

If you’re selling land, you’re in the driving seat. You can choose the route that is most suited to you; we can support you with advice to apply for planning yourself, or alternatively we could guide you through the process of selling to a house builder or developer. It’s worth bearing in mind that there are further valuable options if you choose this route and we can suggest the best one to suit your needs and expectations.

The wide array of interconnected services we’ve built up reflects our expertise and flexibility, and a commitment to giving clients a complete service offering – we advise and assist on buying, selling, leasing, or developing all land types.

Our in-house capabilities include building surveying, planning and sector-specific specialisms. We work with house builders, architects and developers across the North West and can help you achieve the very best outcome within your timescales.

Our overriding aim is to support you in getting optimal value out of your asset.


Are you looking for land?

If you are actively seeking land and development opportunities then we are perfectly placed to help you. We work closely with a range of landowners, investors and developers and can identify suitable opportunities to meet your own specific requirements.

In addition to our existing contacts, we can also undertake bespoke and comprehensive appraisals of development opportunities in your preferred locations, providing our professional advice on suitability of sites for development. Our team has experience of identifying sites for both the development industry and also for local planning authorities. This makes us uniquely placed to advise you on how to meet your land requirements.

If you have land wish you no longer wish to develop, we can offer advice on how best to dispose of the site or maximise its potential.
