In addition to standard viability reporting, S106 Management also support applicants who need to assess and provide a policy justification for proposed change of use from employment land to residential. We provide comprehensive research on employment land need in the local area, the underlying economics of the previous or existing business, and an examination of feasibility options comparing retention of the land in employment use against proposed residential redevelopment, to demonstrate where commercial development, redevelopment or refurbishment is unviable and undeliverable.

 

In this case the scheme proposed conversion of an existing public house into several residential units. The property benefited from previous consents for partial redevelopment, while a community group wished to refurbish the pub in its existing use.

 

S106 Management provided a comprehensive report considering the pub’s commercial position, competition, profit/loss and the viability of the three proposed options on the site. Given the current derelict state of the pub it was noted that the only marginally viable option in this rural location would be redevelopment, and that there was considerable competition in the near vicinity which had already resulted in the closure of 2 similar businesses. As such it was concluded that the proposal to refurbish was unviable and not needed given availability of similar businesses.

Contact us today to discuss your employment land change of use viability needs.
