Development potential

The changing landscape for agriculture has led to an increasing demand for clients looking for diversification and development opportunities. As a result, D&R has seen the growth of land coming to market with development potential and an increasing number of clients looking for guidance on
diversification and grant led projects for the future.

We are currently involved in 100+ sites across Scotland in the North East, the Central Belt, and South West and over the border in Cumbria. There are also opportunities to have a developer/ promoter onboard to best unlock potential and add value. D&R Director Chris Edmunds heads our Planning and Development projects, Chris said “Land and property owners are certainly more willing to review their options, asking us for an experienced outside view to help develop a strategy that will work best for the longer term. “We are finding landowners are keen to explore adding value to their land for housing and other development uses including renewables. It is a different income stream, and with the changing agricultural landscape and
grant support, we are able to provide strategic advice to clients by using our skill sets across a range of workstreams including assessing development
opportunities, land management, utilities, valuations & sales
