Property Development and Planning

During recent decades property development has become a more complex process. The need to adapt to economic change, evolving funding mechanisms, legal developments, technological change, and political and environmental issues pose challenges for the property professional. This course is intended for non-surveying graduates working, or intending to work, in property development and related fields for public authorities, commercial organisations, property or construction companies, and private practice firms. This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills enabling you to offer specialist advice in the field of property development. On completion you'll be able to offer a broad range of expertise, harnessing your first discipline with the theories, practices and techniques of the planning and development surveyor. Extensive use is made of outside speakers many of whom are drawn from our own alumni; some of whom have successfully established their own property development companies.
