The Aggregates & Recycling Information Network

      Carter Jonas LLP is a multi-disciplinary property consultancy providing advice to the broader Commercial, Residential and Rural markets through a network of 29 offices.

      The firm’s experience and expertise in the field of minerals, waste management and related properties is second to none and the origins of the team can be traced back to the 1950’s. Since then the Minerals & Waste Management Team has developed to meet the changing needs of the mineral extraction, building products and waste management business throughout the UK.

      The Team operates throughout the whole of the UK providing professional advice to a large range of clients advising on such matters as:

      General mineral and waste estate management
      We have many years experience in the management of large minerals estates throughout the country on behalf of a range of private, institutional and educational landowners. Our services range from day to day monitoring of active operations, including the collection and auditing of payments, rent reviews, compliance with planning and lease requirements to longer term strategic advice to ensure maximum realisation of asset value.

      Identification of development opportunities
      The Team regularly undertakes desk and field based assessments of minerals and waste potential on greenfield sites on behalf of property owners and potential investors.

      Site acquisition and disposal
      We have acted for a range of clients, both investors and developers in identifying development opportunities available for purchase. In addition, we have advised on the disposal of a range of operational sites as a going concern.

      Valuation & Rating
      Our team of Chartered Minerals Surveyors have many years experience in preparing full ‘Red Book’ valuations for a variety of purposes, including estate and company accounts, Capital Gains Tax, Inheritance tax, compensation, takeovers and mergers. The Team also manages a business rates portfolio of mineral, waste and manufacturing premises on behalf of a number of UK based and International operator companies.

      Negotiation of legal agreements
      Contractual arrangements in respect of minerals and waste properties require careful structuring to suit the property in question, and indeed, the expectations of the client. The Team has negotiated a large number of options, leases, licences and wayleaves for minerals and waste sites throughout the UK and we recognise the need to secure high returns coupled with effective protection of the client’s interests.

      Strategic planning advice
      The team are experienced in the promotion of minerals and waste development opportunities throughout the development control framework. We prepare suitable representations to policy and provide comments on development control documents, ensuring maximum benefit can be achieved. In addition, with our experience in preparing planning submissions and Environmental Impact Assessments, we are well placed to advise the landowner on proposals that are prepared for their particular development opportunity.

      Compensation and compulsory purchase
      The team have successfully negotiated and settled a number of large scale claims for compensation resulting from the sterilisation or severance of minerals or waste potential.

      Provision of expert witness services
      As Chartered Minerals Surveyors, with many years experience in the field, we are well placed to act as respected, technically knowledgeable advisors in the event of dispute.

      The client base of the Team features a wide ranging mix of private and institutional land owners, Banks and financial institutions, mineral and waste operator companies, local authorities and government agencies.
