Representation Summary:

Professional Fees
CLL is concerned that the level of professional fees adopted is too low (10% across all typologies). In our experience, the level of professional fees do not vary across location or market areas but depend on the size and complexity of the site in question. We would therefore advocate that large greenfield and complex brownfield sites are likely to attract higher professional fees on account of enabling works and additional abnormal costs (i.e. remediation, demolition).
We would therefore request that a minimum allowance of 12% for professional fees be adopted across all typologies to reflect the nature of the five year land supply coming forward.
