What are the factors which need to be taken into account when developing a budget?

The factors that would need to be taken into account when developing a budget include (but are not always restricted to) the following:

  • Surveys required (topographical, ecology, archaeology, tree, etc)
  • Site constraints
  • Is consultation required?
  • Planning permission application fee
  • Travel costs including site visits required
  • Is an LVIA/EIA required?
  • Quality of finish (higher quality = higher budget)
  • Timescale (quicker response = more expensive)
  • Planting species specification (mature trees = more expensive)
  • Project management; number of visits required, skill of contractor.
