New developments raise questions about economic viability that seem increasingly important. Why does development economics matter? What is a residual land value? How can local authorities take viability into account? What does ‘you can take it out of land value’ mean? What is the perspective of the development industry? Where does the Community Infrastructure Levy fit in? How do I work within an uncertain market? What is the value of Affordable Housing?
At the end of the Briefing and Workshop you will be better able 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 for policy making and individual schemes
2. Appreciate what developers need to make a scheme work
3. Look at the strengths and weaknesses of the local authority in negotiations
4. Know how the Community Infrastructure Levy fits in
