Property development is a lengthy process but when done right it is the most fulfilling project to be a part of. To ensure a successful development, proper planning needs to be done. If you are planning for success your checklist should include the following:

Locality plan

This is a means of visually locating where the property will be built. Aspects of the local context are considered: from the area it is in, to the atmosphere surrounding it. This makes properties easier to market because if you can sell the area you are half way there – location, location, location!

Site development plan

The site development plan is a more elaborate yet specific version of a locality plan. While the locality plan gives a general overview of the area, the site development plan deals with the way the area will directly affect and interact with the property being developed.

During this phase, the orientation of the building will be established and a plan will be drafted concerning how the building site will be accessed. The plan needs to take into consideration the entrances and exits of the building before and after completion of the building. The site development plan must certify that the property is equipped for municipal services to be able to function properly.

A service report will certify that all the service connections are in place. This refers to water, storm water, sewage, fire, electricity, mechanical and civil services.

Phasing plan

Large development projects need to be broken down into phases to make sure everything gets done and gets done properly. The purpose of the phasing plan is to ensure thorough liaison with local authorities and services is done so that building runs smoothly. This plan will set out exactly when there will be noise, limited access and construction going on in certain places.

Tree plan

When a development is proposed, all its facets must be evaluated. One of the most important factors to determine is whether the development will disturb local fauna and flora. This is especially important when it comes to trees. If the development may damage the biodiversity of the location or its trees including those with a heritage status, a new strategy must be employed.

The tree plan protects long standing flora and guarantees that should they be in harm’s way, measures are put in place to safeguard the environment.

Contour plan

The contour plan sets out a strategy that accounts for the dips and hills of the land. The shape of the land is not only important for the property development but also for arranging and preparing to incorporate the services they require.

Planning for property development is done with the convenience and safety of everyone and the environment in mind. With JNK Properties you and your family will be well taken care of because it is part of our plan.
