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.
We act on behalf of clients and prepare and submit written reps, hearings and act as expert witness at Public Inquiry appeals. As part of the appeal process, we prepare grounds of appeal, statements of common ground and advise on the drafting of expert evidence to be used within Public Inquiry appeals
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.
We promote sites and land for inclusion in emerging local and neighbourhood plans. This includes a preliminary site assessment and submission of details for the local authority’s Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment.
The profile of Self and Custom Build Housing in this country has significantly increased in recent years. We can provide specialist advice to individuals, families, cohousing groups, Town and Parish Council’s and Local Planning Authorities who want to build or help deliver self-build housing.
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.
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.
