An Introduction to Property Development 

A detailed four-part online series chaired by Dan Mitchell, Planning Partner at Barton Willmore. A CONCISE, PRACTICAL and COMPREHENSIVE briefing on HOW IT ALL WORKS – from site finding to funding and from construction to disposal.

  • In four detailed sessions, this online series will cover:
    • The fundaments of getting started – site finding, the developer’s roles and responsibilities, working out occupier demand, finance and appointing professionals
    • Working within the planning system – regulations … pre-applications … appeals … consent 
    • The development teams – what they do … how they work … project delivery
    • The design and construction aspects
    • Valuation and financing
    • Watertight legal agreements
  • No important area will be overlooked – all interpretation will be practical and relevant to real world market conditions using illustrative examples
  • Sessions of 75 minutes each, including answers to questions from participants on the challenges they are facing and on the opportunities being created.
