Economic viability of proposed schemes seems as much of an issue today as it did in the depths of the credit crisis in 2009. With the market improving many ask why this is still the case. Government policy has been driving demand and aiding output through the planning system. What have those changes meant to scheme viability? How do new tenure types fit in the viability process, and which has the most impact for better or worse? How can I work with developers to achieve the optimum solution?
This Briefing and Workshop will enable you to answer these questions and have gained an understanding of the economic principles which drive the development industry and impact on the planning process.
Attending this Briefing and Workshop will help you:
1. Understand why viability matters in the planning process
2. What guidance exists and how to interpret it
3. What are the drivers for developers
4. Understand how to negotiate
5. See how CIL fits in
6. Know how new tenures influence viability
