Education Capacity Impact

Education infrastructure has become restricted across many Local Authorities due to the lack of investment from public and private sectors during the economic downturn and many housebuilders are now faced with the issue of perceived capacity constraints within primary and secondary schools.

We specialise in the analysis of education infrastructure and consider ourselves the market leaders in the production of Education Appraisal reports due to our extensive experience and success.

Clarendon’s Education Appraisal Reports are tailored to site specifics and offer logical solutions to unlock the development potential of land for residential development. Our Education Appraisals have become a vital aspect of many planning applications and are commissioned before submission to inform potential developer contributions and the most suitable phasing of development.

Our experience ranges from initial assessments to expert witnesses at Public Inquiries.

If you have concerns or need advice, Clarendon can prepare an initial assessment of the education infrastructure before a full education appraisal is required.

Contact our Edinburgh office to discuss further.
