CIL & Local Plan Viability Assessments

CIL & Local Plan Viability Assessments

We have extensive experience of undertaking Economic Viability Assessments (EVAs) on behalf of private and public sector clients for both residential and commercial development schemes. This is at a project level for decision taking and at a policy level for plan making.

Viability Assessments

We prepare Viability Assessments for Local Plan Viability, Affordable Housing Viability and Community Infrastructure Levy. This is based on detailed market evidence and consultation including ‘Threshold Land Values’ and extensive sensitivity testing.  We have experience of advocacy at Examinations in Public.

Financial Modelling

We have experience of preparing viability models using Argus Developer or ProDev and creating bespoke cashflow models in Excel.  We are also well versed in using the various development appraisal ‘toolkits’.

Site Specific Viability Appraisals

We also act for Local Planning Authorities to review developer’s viability statements.  We are on Local Authority panels of economic appraisers and also work on specific schemes where there is a viability issue.  Our valuation and appraisal skills enable us to ‘challenge’ the developer’s assumptions to ensure they are robust.
