Groundsure Planning

The value and enjoyment of properties can be significantly affected, positively or negatively, by proposed developments of land and property around them. The Groundsure Planning report contains important and useful information about all planning activities in the local area. It details potential changes to the neighbourhood to help prospective homeowners make the right decision about their property purchase - for example, before exchanging contracts it would be useful to know about any proposals for a new housing development, supermarket or nightclub. 

For more detailed planning information, including a professional opinion about future development opportunities that may affect the property, please order a DevAssess report.
