Planning Strategies

We help developers and landowners put planning strategies at the heart of the project and can review clients’ requirements to provide a clear and concise planning strategy.

This sees us devising a clear and considered means of progressing through the planning system to achieve the desired result, both in terms of achieving a planning consent and working with clients to ensure planning conditions are met and the project can progress swiftly.

Whether it’s a large single dwelling in an open countryside location, a large new residential development on the edge of a town or city, or a city centre development that’s going to create new jobs and employment, we can help shape the right strategy to get your development moving.

Our planning consultants are here to advise you every step of the way. Our deep planning knowledge encompasses local and national planning policies and the rich tapestry of planning case law. It means we can help you shape a development and a planning application that has the best possible chance of being approved.

As well as being used for individual planning applications, planning strategies are also associated with making a case for other business growth objectives, for example planning for major expansion of commercial premises, site identification and development appraisal. Our planning strategies are often used to support business plans and other requests for bank funding or other investment purposes.
