Preparation of planning applications, listed building and advertisement consents
An application for consent is often required to build on or change the use of land. Preparing a planning application can be a time-consuming, complicated process leading to abortive costs and delays if not managed properly. We can reduce the risks in the process by preparing and project managing the submission. We work in partnership with your architect or we can source plan production on your behalf. We will accompany the requisite plans with strong planning, design and access and heritage statements which justify the submission.
Planning decisions are determined having regard to local ‘development plan’ policies and national policies. We research and understand these policies and tailor the arguments in support of our Client’s projects to show compliance with policy. This dramatically increases the chances of gaining planning permission in comparison to proposals which are not supported with robust evidence to show compliance. Only planning consultants can provide you with this service and this also ensures that your project is on an equal footing because we are talking the same language as the planner who will be dealing with the project on behalf of the relevant Local Planning Authority.
We maintain regular contact with the relevant Local Planning Authority’s planning officer who will deal with the application on behalf of the Local Planning Authority so that we can ensure the application is fully understood and quickly address and resolve any issues which may arise during the processing. We engage with Town and Parish Councils and local interest groups on behalf of our clients so that all stakeholders are kept properly informed.
Our impressive track record of securing permissions and consents for a wide range of project types and sizes makes us the leading candidate to deliver your project.
