Development / Site Appraisals and Assessments

Coakley O’Neill prides itself on providing comprehensive development and site appraisal services to both small and large landowners throughout Cork and Ireland. Our initial site analysis highlights the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and constraints associated with any particular site.

Following a site visit as well as consultation with the client, we can prepare a development potential report of a site including an analysis of the site’s context and location, any planning history or precedence which may impact the subject site and the planning policy at local, regional and national level which are deemed to be applicable to the site. Our appraisals outline the permitted use(s) on the subject site, as well as suggest alternative uses that may be permissible that would allow for the optimisation of the development potential of any particular site.

In addition to site and development appraisal reports, we also provide the following assessments to maximise the potential of development sites and assist in securing planning permission;

  • Retail Impact Assessment
  • Sequential Tests
  • Social Infrastructure Assessments
  • Housing Need Assessments
  • Housing Mix Assessments
  • Childcare Needs Reports
  • School-place Demand reports.
