Planning

We devise creative planning strategies that minimise risk

We project manage complex and major planning applications, coordinate consultant teams to address site constraints and secure robust planning consents.

We understand the planning system and talk the same language as local planning authorities. Let us bridge the gap between you and the local authority.

Plus, we’ll work closely with our architecture colleagues to make sure that the scheme submitted for planning is truly workable when it comes to the later technical design stages.

We offer a full planning consultancy service from start to finish. At the concept stage this may include Planning Feasibility Studies or Planning Briefs. Alternatively, we can assist in promoting sites through the strategic planning process and engage with the adoption of Development Plans.

Later in the process we can assist with bringing a Development Team together, including ecologists, surveyors, transport consultants etc, in order that we may submit a planning application (or alternative forms of applications such as a Certificate of Lawfulness).

Should an application be refused, our team can assess the chances of success at Appeal and can assist with the submission of an Appeal either by way of the written or hearing procedure.

Planning expertise is offered in all market sectors including retail, commercial, residential and "specialist". This specialist area has included working with clients on aviation, "Grand Designs" style properties and unique leisure facilities.

Clients vary from development companies and private landowners through to householders.
