The client commissioned a feasibility study for a Campsite before they purchased the land. Although we would highly recommend this step, clients are sometimes reluctant to spend money on a project or on a piece of land before they have bought it. It makes a lot of sense to do so at an early stage in order not to have any surprises further down the line that could possibly threaten the whole project and lead to a considerable financial loss.
In this case, a German client’s project is to develop campsite on a piece of land recommended by an Estate agent. I this case the agent was happy for the client of having feasibility study commissioned to check the Viability of the land for the project. Sometimes you may find that agents are reluctant to have a third party look into properties before the purchase. We recommended that before you buy anything in Spain it is advisable to have an independent property professional look at your purchase before you complete.
In this study, we to looked into a basic design for location, access, the idea of basic costs and legality. We visited the land with the client and her agent and talked through all the ideas for the project. Back in our office, we worked through several options until the client was happy with the layout of the campsite. We produced a basic idea of what cost would be involved and liaised with the town hall about the legality and possibility of procuring a successful planning application.
The main issue this feasibility study for a campsite brought to light was the existence of a livestock farm within a restricted distance to the proposed camp site. On initial plans from the townhall, this existence of the farm was not highlighted and only came to light in the study of surrounding buildings
