Public Sector organisations are facing increasing pressure to deliver and develop surplus land to meet the UK’s growing housing demand and to create space for employment. However, private sector organisations and investors are seeing increasing commercial opportunities from the same demand.
The desire to move quickly can sometimes lead to premature decisions with the risks associated with development not being considered fully.
A number of high-profile cases have shown that not taking due time can lead to some serious issues down the line. Graeme Merry, Environmental Director at Gallagher, has looked into this issue in a thought provoking article.
If you’re organisation is considering land development on a brown or green filed site, please reach out to your usual Gallagher contact who would be happy to discuss the project with you.
