Planning Consultancy

Every project we undertake requires decisions in relation to planning legislation. We have experience of a wide variety of applications from Full Planning Consent to Listed Building Consent, Certificates of Lawfulness to Change of Use. Where we can, we look to use allowances available under Permitted Development Regulations to avoid the need for a planning application.

We have a successful track record gaining planning approvals in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), in National Parks, for Listed Buildings and complex and heavily constrained sites. We have successfully gained planning approvals for many sites with extensive negative planning histories by our lateral thinking, leading to greatly increased land values. 

As each client has specific needs and each site is totally unique, so each project requires analysis to establish its specific mix of constraints and opportunities. The breadth of current regulations means a multidisciplinary approach is required and we can help bring the right team of consultants to give up to date professional advice, in their relevant fields of expertise, and co-ordinate their outputs.
