Property Planning Professionals

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

For IFAs


As an independent financial advisor, you probably use the services of brokers or managing agents to advise on and purchase investments such as stocks and ISAs on behalf of your clients. But how do you manage your clients’ property investments?

Have you ever considered using a specialist adviser to assist your clients in maximising the value of the property and land that forms part of their investment portfolio?

Here at Albright Dene, we can help you to extend the investment advice you’re able to provide by offering a comprehensive review of your clients’ property portfolios at no cost or obligation, enabling them to potentially increase the value of their property and land investments.

We are experts at spotting opportunities to add value to land through planning applications and development.

Let us become part of your team of professional investment advisors and, because we only get paid when we succeed, your client won’t be at risk and, as importantly, neither will your reputation as a top IFA.


You’re bound to be acutely aware of property prices and market opportunities, but when was the last time you had a planning and development expert review your property and land portfolio?

We can quickly and easily advise you on potential gains through the addition of planning consents and, what’s more, we can do this at no cost to you.

And better still, if you decide to work with us, we take all the risk of the associated fees in applying for the planning application, and you don’t pay out anything until the consent has been granted.

With an eye for spotting hidden opportunities and an impressive track record of success, we’re the final piece of the puzzle within your circle of investment advisors.

Get in touch now to book a free planning appraisal of your property or land.

  • 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."
