Landmark ensures relocation is a smart move

In response to this, Landmark, the UK’s leading provider of land data intelligence, is today launching the most comprehensive and flexible planning report for commercial sites that shows planning applications and potential developments within a wide area of the property site

Sitecheck Planning, a major development from the previous Plansearch Commercial report, is a new report which will provide businesses with essential information about proposed developments and land use designations near a property, ensuring that the buyer will not be faced with any nasty surprises about a new location. Unique to the report, Sitecheck Planning will be able to provide the user with information regarding Local Development Plans and Local Development Frameworks, offering details of policies and proposals which will affect the property both today and in the future. This means that companies will be able to purchase new premises safe in the knowledge that development will complement, not compromise, their business.

James Sherwood-Rogers, Managing Director of Landmark Legal and Financial comments: “The Sitecheck Planning report is a must for any commercial enterprise – small or large – particularly in the current economic climate where sound business decisions are vital for survival. Too many businesses purchase premises without knowing about the numerous characteristics of a particular area. This means that companies could be buying near to a new or proposed development that could adversely affect their business.”

Furthermore, it’s the only report to include details of even the most minor applications within the immediate vicinity, making purchasers aware of even the smallest changes which could still have an impact on their business.

As well as local planning applications the report also offers businesses average property prices within the local postcode, local crime rates, as well as information on schools, insurance claims and a breakdown of housing and employment types. This enables the business to fully understand the area and prepare its employees for the move.

James Sherwood-Rogers continues: “There are so many factors to consider when choosing a location for business premises and most buyers focus on issues within the four walls of the premises. The Sitecheck Planning report will offer property professionals and clients peace of mind about the area in which they are choosing to establish their business.  In the current economic climate many businesses cannot afford to take the serious financial hit that a new development could inflict, either because it affects their ability to attract customers, employees or future investment.”

Sitecheck Planning is available from just £100 +VAT. To find out more about the report or any of the reports in the Sitecheck range, please visit or call 0844 844 9966.
