Planning is fundamental to the principles of successful development with a need for recognition of key policies at a national and local level, to be balanced against the commercial realities of delivering new and viable development opportunities.

Our planning team has extensive experience across many sectors of the industry, including housing, commercial, retail, leisure, health care and sustainable energy. Personnel within the team specialise in different fields of the planning system, ranging from the strategic promotion of sites through to the Development Plan process, and project management of large and small development schemes via planning applications or planning appeals.

We can manage the entire planning process from initial pre-application discussions with the local planning authority, to the preparation and undertaking of public consultation through to the submission and determination of the application.

  • Site appraisals
  • Pre-application advice
  • Planning applications
  • Design and Access statements
  • Public consultation
