Helping local authorities turn old into new for the benefit of local communities.
We help local authorities plan and deliver ambitious regeneration projects that create health, wealth and happiness. Through effective planning, astute risk management and insightful advice we can help you and your team to save time, reduce costs and grow the value of your estates to ensure maximum local impact.
Our team can advise at all stages of the regeneration process from the formation of local development plans, and the facilitation of public consultation, through to tendering for developers and securing land through acquisition and compulsory purchases. We understand the financial and social value of your investment and we will work tirelessly to get you the best possible outcomes.
When it comes to letting or selling completed developments, our experienced consultants will make sure you get the very best return, for the benefit of your local community. From the creation of detailed market reports and the targeting of on-and-off-market opportunities, to the negotiation of options, claw backs and development agreements, we are here to advise you and your team every step of the way.
Addressing economic decline and achieve economic growth and job creation through the built environment needs an understanding of the local area and market sectors. We advise on the changes that can be brought through a change in perception and delivery of development with a structured approach to achieve success.
Being able to travel smoothly to, from and around any region is key to creating jobs and economic growth, and it forms a key part of the Levelling Up Agenda. JK has been advising Local Authorities and Network Rail on the development of transport hubs for over a decade. Our insightful and practical advice has delivered successful hubs in Hull, Sheffield, York and Hexham, with an ongoing project in Darlington. We also advised on the £40m acquisition of Teesside International Airport and the subsequent development of a 270-acre distribution and logistics scheme via a joint venture, to maximise impact on the local economy.
Enabling Local Authorities to arrest the declining value of derelict areas is another key feature of Levelling Up. The huge sums involved mean that private sector investment must be leveraged alongside investment from the public purse. JK has achieved this for a number of public sector clients by collaborating on the creation of innovative master plans that map out changes of use and help to create significant market demand. Our experienced team can help you to attract private sector investors and developers, giving them confidence in the viability of their investment and advising clearly on the formation of joint ventures or special purpose vehicles to drive projects forward and ensure value for money for everyone.
