Our PLANNING Services


PLANNING APPLICATIONS

The main part of our business is to act on behalf of applicants to secure planning permission for development proposals.  We have over twenty fives years of planning experience, with 20 years of it working for Councils.

We understand the planning process and recent changes in National planning guidance in the form of the National Planning Policy Framework and National Planning Practice Guidance.  

We can recommend Architects and Architectural Technicians to work with us to get a scheme ready for planning submission. By working together you get our expertise in understanding the complexities of the planning system as well as access to qualified designers.  We can also bring in other experts, when necessary, to provide advice in respect of trees, ecological issues, land contamination, topographical surveys and flood risk.

PLANNING APPEALS

Receiving a refusal of planning consent can be incredibly frustrating.   In November 2017 we formed  Planning Appeals North West as a sister business to our planning consultancy to meet the increased demand.    Please have a look at our website for more information about the types of planning appeal that we get involved with and some of our success stories.

Planning appeals are not just about appealing against the refusal of planning permission, but about appealing against unreasonable planning conditions, enforcement notices and the failure of a planning authority to determine an application within the prescribed time period.
