Planning & Development

Planning & Development

Merrifields have a proven track record in providing appropriate cost effective advice to a range of clients including Private Individuals, Charities, PLC’s, Managed Funds and Limited Companies with regard to alternative uses and adding value to property interests.

Our experienced surveyors have worked on a wide range of development projects providing advice in respect of Green and Brownfield development for Industrial Estates, Office Parks, Trade Parks, Residential Dwellings and re-use of town centre and rural properties.

We take time to understand our clients’ short, medium and long-term objectives and the planning system, including local and national policies to give our clients the best possible advice. Sometimes that advice is not as expected but is best advice to seek added value from clients assets taking cost implication in to account. 

In a world that is becoming very specialist and ‘legalistic’ Merrifields choose to work with specialists in their field including planning consultants, architects and environmental specialists in order to deliver cost effective, viable and profitable planning solutions.  We often head-up a multi-disciplined team to provide the desired result.
