Property Planning Professionals

We champion you through the planning process and increase your property’s worth

For Charities

We know that, as a charity, you may well have land and property that has been gifted through inheritance over the years. You may even have a large rented portfolio as part of your investment strategy. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could raise additional funds by increasing the value of these property assets without any risk?

We can provide a comprehensive professional review of your property portfolio, advising where and how value can be added by gaining planning consents.

We are experts in identifying schemes that will maximise the potential of a site, whilst at the same time being acceptable to planning officers and the local community.  We have an enviable track record of success and many very happy clients.

And because we understand that, as a charity, it’s not feasible or advisable for you to speculate with your own funds, we speculate on your behalf – using our own funds to apply for and deliver consents.

We know exactly what works and we are experts at managing planning applications through the minefield that is the Local Authority planning system. So you can be confident of our mutual success.

As our interests are fully aligned with yours – we work with you towards the common goal of adding as much value as possible to your property portfolio, which in turn will raise additional funds for you to carry out your amazing work.

  • I have worked with Albright Dene on numerous projects over the past 10 years. They usually come to me with quite challenging sites, but they are always very inventive in their approach, and think outside the box when looking for solutions to make them work.

    Their resourceful approach and their great negotiation skills when dealing with planners means that they are successful in achieving planning permission for their sites – even the tricky ones.

  • "I owned a site that had a history of failed planning applications. At least four major companies had attempted to secure permission, but failed. Then I asked Albright Dene to help.

    It was absolutely brilliant working with Albright Dene. As it was a tricky plot, many problems arose during the process, but they were able to overcome each and every one, and successfully deliver a positive result.

    Gaining planning for this site converted an unused, derelict paddock into a beautiful setting for two substantial family homes – and that is all thanks to the tenacity and determination of Albright Dene. I cannot recommend their services highly enough."

  • "Having met Joe McDermott whilst searching for a building plot in Oxford in January 2009, I was so impressed with the depth of property knowledge he had that I set up a company to work in partnership with him. We are now on our seventh project, all of which have been profitable, with some achieving Annual Rates of Return in excess of 100%. These days Joe has developed his methods and operation even further and the speed and imagination that is employed in gain planning consents time after time is staggering.

    In an environment where the planning process and planning committees are far from an exact science, Joe and Albright Dene find a way of succeeding every time. As Managing Director of I&O Ltd, I intend to continue investing in the talents of Albright Dene for the foreseeable future."
