Rural Development

Rural Development

Our rural development services is a cross-discipline initiative that enables development and maximises financial returns for rural landowners.

The introduction of new permitted development rights in agriculture together with other changes to legislation, markets and technological advances is widening the scope of viable development in the countryside.

We provide clients with the diverse professional skills required to assess options, understand the viability of those options and potential impact on the retained estate, obtain planning permission and maximise returns.

The breadth of our team's rural planning skills may include, among others, the following:

  • New farm dwelling
  • Specialist intensive agricultural livestock housing
  • Barn conversions
  • Small and large scale strategic housing and commercial development
  • Leisure enterprises and diversification
  • Renewable energy opportunities
  • Minerals and waste
  • Advice on joint ventures, promotion and option agreement

In all circumstances, our teams work together to help clients realise their farming and development opportunities in a dynamic, challenging and competitive marketplace.
