The all-in-one infrastructure report

Groundsure’s Energy and Transportation is a new report providing a comprehensive search of existing and planned energy and transport infrastructure. Including data unique to Groundsure, the report uses our unique intelligent filtering to provide only relevant information, and provides clear next steps for your transaction.

Property buyers are becoming increasingly concerned about possible impacts of infrastructure projects. High profile public concern over HS2, Crossrail, hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and wind farms mean that these are real factors that can influence property prices. Similarly, the presence of existing energy and transport infrastructure can be a factor on the potential value and enjoyment of property.

This report distills the content and value from our earlier suite of energy and transport related products; Groundsure Energy, HS2 and Energy, HS2 and Crossrail and Groundsure Underground; into the only infrastructure report you need. Suitable for both residential and commercial property.
