Additional Information
You are to identify a possible development site suitable for residential development between 8 and 20 houses.

You are to assess the site for residential development, conduct the required due diligence and provide an initial residual appraisal to provide a recommended offer to the client for the site.

You are to prepare a development viability report to your client outlining the site opportunities and constraints and your recommendations as to how the site could be developed. Your report is to focus on the following key tasks:

On the basis of your investigations, and assuming delivery of a residential development, you are to consider the site density, massing and scale and comment on the following points:
Details of investigations required under due diligence to determine feasibility.
Site limitations and constraints taking account of the local environment and built environment.

In your report to the client, you must identify the key stakeholders involved and discuss their respective roles within the development process and what impact they may have on determining the success of the scheme. Within this you should discuss development funding and the funding options available to the client.

Additionally, you should provide advice within the report on an appropriate offer which should be derived from an initial residual appraisal of the proposed scheme. The calculations for the residual appraisal can be attached within an appendix.

Please support all work using appropriate references and examples.

You should also use the APA 7th Harvard Style referencing in your submission.

The coursework assessment should be presented in the form of a
professional report.

Your report should include a brief introduction and conclusion. For clarity, the wording contained in the introduction, conclusion, contents page and reference list will not be included in the word count.
