Carter Jonas could help your school to unlock the lucrative development potential of its site, especially if it is in an important urban area. Maybe the school owns land that is surplus to its requirements. Or perhaps the need to expand or upgrade facilities means that a new site must be found and the current one disposed of.

Either way, an appraisal of a site’s development potential could reveal significant capital value for investment elsewhere in the school. We’ll take care of it. Our Development and Planning Teams will work together to produce an agreed strategy for maximising a site’s potential, identify alternative greenfield or brownfield locations, negotiate with local planning authorities and promote the site in the Local Development Framework to ensure a school’s ongoing success.
