Planning application

It’s at the heart of what we do

Preparing considered and effective planning applications is at the heart of what we do.

There are various application strategies we can adopt, but choosing the right application strategy mostly comes down to exactly what kind of structure you want to build in your garden – and what you want to use the building for.

Initial development appraisal

Every project we undertake commences with an initial development appraisal. Within a few hours of research, we are in a position to advise you on what type of application may be most beneficial to your project – taking into consideration site context and planning history, local and national policies, relevant legislation, case law and precedents.

We're here for you

We can also act on your behalf to complete all necessary documentation and apply for any available community infrastructure levy. Our meticulous and considered preparation of all such documents is vital, since even the smallest error can result in a refusal.

And you can rely on us to offer expert advice on all aspects such as community infrastructure levy (CIL) and advice on third party requirements such as Ecology, Drainage, Arboriculture, and recommend and partner third party consultants.

Of course we must also be adept at engaging and negotiating effectively with the Local Planning Authority. With direct experience of submitting over 500 planning proposals to more than 250 LEAs, that’s something you can take as read.
