Many of our clients reach out to us to assist with understanding the risks involved with purchasing a property. Given the extensive nature of planning and environmental policies that apply to many jurisdictions, the decision of whether or not to purchase land is rarely simplified.
Groundswell conducts a review of planning policy, and (where necessary) works with environmental scientists and civil engineers to understand the constraints that would limit the value and potential of a property. In many cases, we can provide a reasonable expectation of the amount of development that would be permitted as well as the potential uses and density that could be realized. Mapping and images are also prepared to ensure that our clients clearly understand the opportunities associated with their property consideration.
