What we do
We are specialists in affordable housing viability assessment with an 9 year track record of reducing and on many occasions removing affordable housing obligations altogether. We provide viability reports to support planning applications, challenge existing unviable s106 requirements, negotiate s106 terms with LA’s and we have represented clients at appeals with successful outcomes in Bournemouth, New Forest, South Downs National Park, Wokingham and Islington councils.
A viability assessment is not just about affordable housing on market sites, a viability report can also be used for a range of other development issues such as justifying a minimum site density, enabling development to fund the retention of existing building or making the case a particular tenure mix on a development.
Initial outline assessments can be provided at no cost so you have the peace of mind that we can help before you formally instruct us to proceed.
