The complexities that exist within the modern planning applications system can get the better of even those with a good deal of experience of development, let alone landowners, small businesses and those with only a passing involvement in applying for planning permission. We can help you navigate these complexities, so you can get best advantage from the system.
We are able to prepare, submit and offer advice on all of the various types of application which make up the UK planning system, including:
- Outline and full planning applications
- Listed building and conservation area applications
- Reserved matters submissions
- Change of use applications
- Discharge of planning conditions
- Variation of planning conditions
- Lawful development certificates
Although we are principally involved in a full-service of managing and co-ordinating the planning process on behalf of the client, we remain happy to provide free-standing planning statements to support clients or their agents in the progress of planning applications.
With extensive experience of negotiating legal agreements associated with the grant of planning permission, we have had considerable success in negotiating realistic financial and associated settlements. We find that early engagement with the authority tends to pay financial dividends as well as saving valuable time later in the development process.
We have close working partnerships with a diverse range of allied consultants (legal, highways, architectural, landscape, ecological, engineering) who can provide the full range of environmental and associated advice to support applications where necessary.
