Planning Advice, Appraisals & Applications

Whether you have a straightforward query about whether or not you require planning permission, or you would like to know the development potential of a site, we are here to help. 

We can draw on many years of experience with local planning authorities, to provide you with effective and sound planning advice, adding value to your project.

With the complexity of the planning process, increasing and ever changing submission requirements, together with increasing community involvement, it is more and more common for a formal pre-application request to be made to a Council. This is to establish the initial thoughts on a development project and the level of information it will require to support a planning application.

We can provide you with our own initial application appraisal and can handle the rest of the process on your behalf.

Our planning application service includes:

  • Full planning and outline planning permission
  • Prior approvals (Class Q) and prior notification
  • Certificates of lawfulness
  • Removal, variation and discharge of planning conditions
  • Listed building and conservation area consent
  • Advertisement consent
  • Works to preserved tress

We also have access to a wide range of other professionals, crucial to the planning process. These include:

  • Architects
  • Structural engineers
  • Ecologists
  • Transport consultants

We can work with you and these third parties, to manage the whole process on your behalf as a complete package.

We have a very varied caseload of projects on the go at any time. From small residential projects through to large-scale development sites.

We would be delighted to speak to you about any aspect of the planning process and advise you on your project.
