Application Management

Our ongoing monitoring of current planning applications has great value in ensuring we give all our clients a candid assessment of their chances of success with their applications. It is an essential barometer of the local authority’s current mindset on planning approvals and what likely documentation may likely be required in support of your proposal.

We can advise on the optimum time for submitting your application and use our extensive and established relationships with key partners such as architects, ecologists, drainage experts and transport planners to bring together a collaborated submission that covers all required aspects and ensure a robust submission.

Once submitted, our team is skilled at expediting validation of applications and dealing with officer queries to ensure the case is being correctly assessed and considered. Where responses are required to officers or consultation responses, our team can guide you on how best to respond and if any changes may be required to ensure a positive outcome. We pride ourselves on keeping our clients well informed on progress throughout the application process.

Your planning approval may come with a set of conditions and planning obligations (such as Section 106 heads of terms and/or CIL Liability) that we can then review and, if need be, negotiate with the local authority to keep your project costs in check and then discharge as appropriate.

We never charge for that initial conversation and investigation into your site or development and we always give you a free initial assessment of your chances of success.

Person thinking

Take the worry out of the process, knowing professionals that do this every day are looking out for you.

We manage the entire planning application process ensuring the steps to a successful project outcome are accomplished. The quote you receive for this work is a fixed price (unless you prefer to pay as an hourly rate) and encompasses the entire process from start to finish, with the exception of conditions discharge, because these are very uncertain at the outset.

There are several steps we take to minimise problems with your application:

  • Ensure quality designs are presented and design standards are upheld.
  • The planning application is properly prepared. Your application stands the best chance of success if it is completed properly with all the necessary supporting documents.
  • We monitor what is getting planning permission to enable a design-led approach and ensure our clients applications are in line with council policy.
  • Maintaining positive relationships with the local planning authority’s planning officers is important to us, it helps us to resolve any issues early on, negotiate and see applications through to success.
