What is property planning and development?
Planning and development work is a specialism within the broader real estate sector. Specialists in this area work at both strategic policy and operational levels. Their work impacts on the physical aspects of the built and natural environment, as well as social, economic and environmental aspects.
Development surveyors’ source, appraise, value, and sell a wide range of land and property, including housing, retail and commercial premises. They oversee development projects, including residential, commercial and public builds, working with other professionals, managing budgets ensuring that all compliance, safety and risk management standards are met.
Development surveyors also focus on maximising the value and return of assets, assessing the performance of an investor’s portfolio to ensure profitability and value.
