planning & development

At the beginning of a project there is often many strategies that need to be considered and an assessment made by the client of what is the best route, according to timescales, cost risk or whatever other relevant consideration is necessary to the client.

Optimis seeks to provide guidance but ultimately take the lead for strategy from the client.

Optimis recommend that for large or complicated property interests in particular it is beneficial to undertake an appraisal of all the planning and policy issues together with any technical guidance from outside consultants. We advocate that a Planning appraisal is undertaken which looks at all relevant policy advice, including discussions with all relevant organisations so that a clear strategy can be laid down, from which the property asset can be promoted.
