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.
