Development & Alt Use

Pubs, hotels, restaurants and leisure property often comprise of substantial buildings on good sized sites in central and/or prominent roadside locations.

They regularly have their own car park and are in built up areas. It is no wonder, therefore, that many properties we deal with are suitable for alternative uses and/or development.

We provide marketing and valuation advice including liaison with planning consultants and architects about the benefits of obtaining planning permission prior to a sale in order to maximise value. Whether it is for a convenience store joint venture, a site for affordable housing or a pub listed on the Community Asset Register, we have the bases covered and ensure you benefit from our experience.

We have 62 properties currently on the market that offer development potential

Selling a site with development potential?

Whether you are just beginning to think about selling, or you have made up your mind and want to act quickly/confidentially, Fleurets can provide the detailed marketing advice and recommendations needed to make your decisions.

Our advice and discussions will include consideration of the opportunities for a sale for alternative uses, development of the site, and opportunities to explore marriage value by combining various interests in the property or working with adjacent land owners.

If you want an off market deal to retain confidentiality or you want the world to know, our experienced and specialist negotiators will be able to provide the advice that you require. This is often not the advice you want to hear but the advice you need to hear.

Planning reports

The closure of Public Houses can be a sensitive issue, especially where the alternative provision of other licensed operations in an area is limited. This has led to the introduction of a Register of Assets of Community Value and Planning Policies designed to protect a local amenity. Sometimes these controls are necessary and beneficial but on other occasions they can restrict investment into an area that would replace an unviable licensed premises.

To help Local Authorities, Communities, Operators and Developers identify the valid from the invalid, Fleurets are able to provide Planning Reports that deal with the issues surrounding the viability of Public Houses and the application of the appropriate planning policy.
