The fully revised and updated third edition of this textbook provides a comprehensive guide to the property development process, taking readers from initial project evaluation to planning, funding, construction and disposal.  The last ten years have seen regional planning apparatus swept away and replaced by new neighbourhood plans and more prominence is now given to financial viability in planning policy and decision making. The uncertainty of the financial crisis and the associated housing crash have given way to a new wave of commercial and housing development, and in this period of growth it is more important than ever to be aware of the risks and opportunities inherent in the property market.

 This book is an ideal companion for students on courses in estate management, land economics, property development, real estate, surveying, construction, planning and related subjects. The book will also have value for practitioners in any of these fields who as part of their CPD obligations may be looking to refresh and update their knowledge.
