Unlocking value

We have in-depth knowledge and years of experience in assisting clients in unlocking value from sustainable development. Coupled with our strong relationships with Local Authorities and our extensive local knowledge, we are well-placed to compile robust and well thought out planning applications on behalf of clients.

Our team includes surveyors as well as town planners, so we are able to offer viability appraisals to ensure that a project is financially sound. Our in-house design team work closely with our planning team to ensure the planning and design functions are fully aligned and use cutting-edge design technology to visualise a proposed scheme or development. Our team prides itself on attention to detail and its ability to closely monitor progress on applications enabling projects to complete on time and within budget.

Appeals

We are also able to offer a full appeal service in circumstances where an application is refused irrespective of whether we were involved in the initial planning application or not.  Our priority is to avoid planning refusals by early engagement with Local Planning Authorities and Councillors and given the increasing costs associated with the preparation and submission of planning applications, we often recommend making a pre-application planning enquiry to the Council to establish whether the principle of development is acceptable.

The planning process

We have created the following chart which details all stages of the planning process. A more detailed guide to each step can also be found here.
