Planning and listed building applications

We prepare and submit planning and listed building applications for a range of projects including complex developments. We act for developers and can prepare planning drawings or work with the client’s architect if they have one. The key to obtaining planning permission is establishing the best strategy.

Development Feasibility Appraisals

Our starting point for any feasibility appraisal is to consider the opportunities and constraints of the site and set out what the key considerations might be. We will advise on the relevant planning policies at both national and local level including the local Neighbourhood Plan if there is one.

Change of use (COU) Prior approval applications

Prior approval permitted development rights have created an alternative route to maximising the potential of a property without the need for submitting a full planning application. We can advise you whether your proposal meets the relevant criteria set out in the permitted development rights and whether a prior approval is the best approach.

Planning Law and Regularisation

Planning Law and Regularisation

A Certificate of Lawfulness (CLUED) is a legal document which makes unlawful development immune from enforcement action. If works have taken place without planning permission, providing there is no concealment, then we can advise you. If appropriate, we can prepare and submit a certificate of lawfulness on your behalf.
