FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What Would You Like to Know?

COULD I JUST PROMOTE THE LAND MYSELF?

Land promotion can be a long and demanding process; In addition to the large application planning costs, it requires considerable financial investment and risk.

 

We extensively research opportunities with an in-depth understanding of the complexities of the planning landscape. constantly monitoring the changing market and area profiles within our region, revisiting schemes to ensure we are delivering the best most viable development.

 

We have built strong connections and partnerships within the industry ensuring we have the expertise to clear the planning and technical hurdles required to secure the maximum sales value for your land. 

WHAT IF PLANNING PERMISSION ISN'T GRANTED?

We seek to secure planning permission at a local level, but in the unfortunate event of an appeal or legal challenge we engage our legal team in preparing the appeal case.

At every stage, we test and check our applications to ensure they accord with statutory or emerging national and regional planning policies, to maintain their robustness which will give us the best possible chance of a planning success.

If Paramount do not achieve planning permission over the period of the promotion agreement, the agreement will come to an end and we will bear all the expenditure.

WHY A PROMOTION WITH PARAMOUNT?

We are completely independent and impartial. We can apply more flexibility and initiative within every part of our business. And, because we are privately funded, the only money we invest in promoting your land is our own, so our interests are totally aligned.

We enjoy working with landowners and benefit from their involvement as much as possible through the design process, so that the homes reflect the aspirations and needs of local people. The benefits go so much further and deeper than any one individual

Our passion for residential development is apparent through our lasting business relationships and a warm and friendly approach

WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVES?

As land promoters we would work with you to bring forward your land under either a promotion agreement, option agreement or unconditional purchase to suit your requirements as the landowner.

 

We believe the key to success is a close alignment of interests and a working together philosophy 

WHAT IF MY LAND DOESN'T SELL?

As a scheme evolves, we are always reviewing the market and thinking ahead in terms of sales strategy to avoid such circumstances.

In the event that there is a failure in the market or the offers received do not meet our expectations; we can organise and fund the implementation of the necessary infrastructure so that the land can be sold in smaller plot sizes or self build opportunities.

Alternatively we are happy to suspend the sale and bring the site back to the market within an agreed time period.
