The Art of Assessing the Planning Potential of a Site Before Making an Application 

This detailed three-part on-demand series provides practical tips for developers, investors and professionals who own a development site, or are considering purchasing or investing in one and are trying to understand the planning potential of the site and any value uplift they might be able to achieve.
