Case Study: Beechwood Mews
Red Loft provided consultancy input on all aspects of affordable housing across design development, planning and marketing up to exchange of contracts with the RP partner. This consistency of input throughout ensured that a marketable and deliverable S106 agreement was secured with the Local Planning Authority. Red Loft's informal discussions with prospective RP partners provided valuable insight on the strength of offers made, where certainty was crucial in a rapid programme through planning to start on site.
