A Feasibility Study can be carried out independently to provide more detailed analysis than a Pre-development enquiry.
The process is similar to Stage 1 (the SL1 Stage) of the S98 Application and as such it may be possible to utilise the results as part of the S98 Process, should the Applicant choose to progress to this stage.
In this case a reduction in fees and timescales for the S98 may be achieved.
The Feasibility study does not however provide a preliminary budget estimate nor a Desktop Environmental 3rd Party Appraisal.
