Due to our extensive work in Midtown, and Bloomsbury in particular, we have become involved with a wide range of D1 Educational and Health organisations. As a result we have acquired a range of fully retained clients in this sector and have dealt with some significant D1 property searches and disposals across London.
D1 is a wide ranging and specialist area that requires specialist experience and insight. We do not just look at the physical size of a D1 space, we explore its appropriateness from a financial as well as spatial point of view assessing Fire Officer viability for high density educational uses as well as VAT implications (a large proportion of D1 Users cannot reclaim VAT).
Due to the extensive diversity of the D1 Use Class there is also significant scope for accommodating pure teaching or medical in alternative accommodation types due to Use Class “crossover”. We have successfully taken advantage of such situations on behalf of clients in the past and to great advantage.
Our extensive work in this sector has also provided us with an instinct for understanding central London boroughs and their approach to planning and the likely outcome of a planning approach should it be necessary.
