What the housing development process involves Click to get info
- Housing development starts with carrying a feasibility and viability appraisal. This tells us how many homes could fit on the site, and how much it’ll cost to build.
- If we can build homes on the site, an architect will prepare plans, reports and everything else needed for a planning application.
- When we’re happy with the plans, we’ll submit a planning application to the local planning authority like any other developer.
- Residents and businesses around the site are then consulted and are invited to comment on the planning application. See commenting on a planning application to find out how to comment.
- If planning permission is granted, we’ll appoint a building contractor to build the homes.
The whole process can take at least two years.
