Financial Viability Assessments

Financial Viability Assessments (FVAs) are central in the development process being the tool that judges the financial ability of a proposed development to fulfil Local Plan policies including provision of affordable housing and other community services.

The assessment is carried out in the form of an independent appraisal and recommendations report to the Local Planning Authority (LPA) and is used to inform negotiations with the LPA. The appraisal takes into consideration the specifics of each site and Plan policy requirements to determine a balance between development profit and community infrastructure that facilitates development.
