We have been instructed by NHS Property Services Ltd to develop planning strategies for several NHS Sites in the North West and Yorkshire, particularly to assist with estate management and site disposals.
Establishing a bespoke Planning Strategy early in the project, we prepared an initial appraisal of planning and development issues.
In the case of proposed disposals, this work focussed on identifying the key opportunities and risks for planning and development. Following the preparation of technical reports and planning submissions, we co-ordinated the planning application process and undertook any negotiations required.
Having benefited greatly from our pre-application advice and appraisals, a number of related sites have subsequently been brought to market successfully. As a part of this project, we have also been instructed to prepare a planning application to confirm the development potential of a site near York.
