Making the Business Case To Secure Funding

Making the Business Case To Secure Funding

Halls provides support to both public and private sector clients in obtaining funding from the Central Government for transportation, housing, and regeneration projects. Our experienced teams in Socio-Economic and Development Economics & Housing Advisory specialize in Green Book Appraisal and the development of business cases.

Our approach combines a deep knowledge of economic appraisal and the planning system, as well as an understanding of scheme viability and funding options, including CIL, CPO, and land value capture. Importantly, we emphasize the connection between the economic and strategic cases, which is often overlooked.

Making the Business Case

Our expertise is in creating compelling business cases that show how projects align with government policies and deliver positive outcomes, such as job creation, investment, and housing. The 2020 update to the Green Book places greater emphasis on strategic objectives and place-based analysis, making our approach increasingly relevant and important to the government.

We help clients determine their funding needs and present a strong case to meet the objectives of funders. Our team is knowledgeable about funding sources and eligibility and can secure private sector contributions.

We have successfully secured funding for our clients from various sources, including Housing Infrastructure Funds, City Deals, Local Growth Funds, as well as area-based initiatives such as business rate retention in Enterprise Zones, Development Corporations, and Tax Increment Financing.
