Property Development Joint Venture Partners: Maximising the Value from your Land

Looking to maximise on the potential from your land?

Are you a landowner looking for Cornwall based property development joint venture partners? It may be that you’re wondering how you can harness the value of your land and turn it into a successful residential development or holiday park? If you own a plot of land, or your garden is large enough to accommodate a new property, you could consider developing the land you already own.

We work with clients in Rock, Polzeath, Mawgan Porth and surrounding areas of North Cornwall. Starting with a blank sheet of paper we can help analyse your site, consider the best approach to delivering maximum yield, and devise the most appropriate site lay-out and specification to suit the end-purchaser. We employ ‘end first’ thinking in order to ensure that the most appropriate market is targeted and, from the first stages of activity, the development sets off on the right foot.

Navigating Uncertainty

What Aspects Do Planners Consider?

Many landowners are unsure where to begin when it comes to turning their ideas into reality, especially when starting the search for property development joint venture partners. The development process can easily seem overwhelming, from site analysis to securing Planning consent and that’s before considering what the cost of surveys and professionals might become.

When seeking Planning consent on a piece of land you own, the local authority Planning department takes into account various factors, including, but not limited to:

Privacy & Overlooking

Planners assess how your proposed development might impact the privacy and overlooking of neighbouring properties.

Loss of Light

Consideration is given to any potential loss of light that may result from the new development.

Parking & Traffic

Planners evaluate parking allocation and potential traffic-related issues, including road safety and the increase in traffic and noise.

Heritage & Conservation

Any impacts on listed buildings and conservation areas are carefully examined.

Layout & Density

The proposed building layout and density are assessed to ensure they align with the local context, Cornwall Local Plan and any Neighbourhood Development Plans which are in place.

Design & Materials

Planners scrutinise the design and materials being used to ensure they fit with the local Cornish vernacular common to the immediate area.

Nature Conservation

Planners consider the potential impact on nature and, for developments of any scale, require a 10% biodiversity net gain which is based on ecological metrics. This requires care to ensure space for a profitable scheme.

Shaping your project

We understand that shaping your project as property development joint venture partners is a collaborative effort that should yield benefit for all parties involved. Here’s how we work together to create a project that both aligns with your goals whilst ensuring a positive financial outcome for both you and us:

Win-Win Arrangements

Our approach is based on creating win-win arrangements. We carefully consider both your interests and ours, aiming to strike a fair balance that leads to a mutually advantageous project.

Planning Phase

If your site has yet to secure Planning permission, we typically explore the possibility of drafting an 'option' agreement. This agreement is contingent upon obtaining Planning consent. Once secured, we proceed to establish an SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle) company. This SPV serves as the vehicle through which we drive the development project forward.

Securing Financing

As part of the process, we leverage our expertise to bring in the necessary build finance. This financial support ensures that your project has adequate resources required for successful development.

Expert Project Management

We offer project management expertise to oversee and coordinate all aspects of the development. This includes everything from construction to logistics, ensuring a streamlined and efficient process when working as property development joint venture partners.

By adopting this collaborative and strategic approach, we aim to shape your land development project into a success story that benefits both parties. With clear starting assumptions set out, your goals are our goals, and together we can bring your vision to fruition.
