August 2012

rural consultancy news

The prestigious Belvoir Estate in Rutland and The Earl of Rutland and Dr Fleming’s Hospital Trust have appointed a national firm of chartered surveyors to manage their respective agricultural and commercial property portfolios. 

Fisher German will oversee the management of a vast range of buildings, facilities and equipment. This includes non farming enterprises such as pubs, village halls, equestrian units/land, shops offices, telecoms masts, fisheries and recreational facilities; including playgrounds, a bowling club and a cricket club.
 
The firm already have strong ties with the estate, currently managing the in hand farming operations and farm tenancies.
 
David Merton and his team from Fisher German’s rural consultancy team will manage the portfolio on behalf of the estate. David comments “I am delighted to announce that we are managing this portfolio. We already have an excellent relationship with them and it seemed like a natural step for both Fisher German and the estate.
 
“We will be looking to build on the successes achieved to date and bring new innovative solutions to standard estate management practices, increasing profitability of the let buildings and facilities. We already have a number of projects underway, including finding new uses for redundant buildings to maximise the returns from existing assets on the estate.”
 
Fisher German has overseen the in hand farming operations and farm tenancies since 2009. This is led by Richard Sanders and his team who are actively involved in the day to day management of the estate’s farmland which includes approximately 2,500 acres of arable land and around 1,000 acres of grassland. 
 
Richard comments “During our involvement, the contribution to estate profits from farming activities has greatly increased as a result of substantially reducing costs and improving cropping performance. This has been achieved alongside a substantial increase in the estate’s shooting enterprise.” 
 
David Merton concludes “We are working with one of the finest estates in the country and we hope to develop the estate and diversify and grow its income streams over the coming years.”
