The James Blake Associates Adoption Team

We provide a dedicated resource to initiate, negotiate, and pursue land adoption through to completion.

The cost of maintaining open space is rarely budgeted for. This significant cost comes straight off the bottom line.  James Blake Associates can significantly reduce your workload, monitor, inspect and arrange for remedial works, liaise with Local Authority and water companies, liaise with your contractors and project manage any construction.

We are experienced in dealing with Section 106 Planning Agreements, Section 38 Highway Agreements and Section 104 Water Industry Act Agreements. This can save you time and money.

When pursuing adoption, house builders take on a considerable burden consisting of numerous peripheral issues that detract from the business of building and selling dwellings. These take significant time and effort to resolve, often distracting attention from your priorities. However, if these matters are not given the time and effort from a dedicated resource they can cause problems, delays, and increased costs. Making use of our adoption service can save you time, money, and a considerable amount of hassle.

There is a wealth of expertise and experience available including:

  • All types of land adoption and planning agreements
  • Technical advice
  • Obtaining quotations
  • Negotiating with contractors
  • Provision of select lists of contractors
  • Site inspections and work monitoring
  • Project management
  • Liaison with local authority staff
