Our Planning Service

The process of securing planning permission is often technically complex and occasionally fraught. Most of our customers let us take the strain and make the planning application for them.

The process of securing planning permission is driven by a complex mixture of national and local policy documents. To the untrained eye, the implementation of these policies can occasionally seem inconsistent and tainted with a layer of emotion and ‘politics’.

From the very start of your journey our expert team will guide you through the process, beginning with a free appraisal of your plot to clarify the constraints and opportunities it presents. We will identify which specialist surveys are best carried out before making your application and which we think should be left until requested.

Most of the planning applications we make can be accommodated within our standard fee agreements. However, some plots require a level of input it would be unfair to include within this because of the additional report preparation they require. We will advise you of any additional charges before beginning work on your application.
