Applications

The preparation and submission of applications is one of our core services, whether it be applications for planning permission for new development or changes of use, listed building and/or conservation consent, advertisement consent, certificates of lawful use, applications to modify existing planning permissions or discharge planning conditions.

At the outset we identify the planning issues and advise how to address them. Once the strategy is agreed, we will advise on the information required to accompany the application and prepare and submit the necessary documentation. Pre-application consultation is often advisable. We undertake pre-application meetings with Council’s and consult stakeholders and the local community as necessary. Once an application is submitted we monitor and manage its progress up to determination.

We are experienced in identifying the range of other technical environmental services (e.g. transport, air quality, acoustic, landscape impact, masterplanning, ecology and archaeology expertise) that may be required to deliver a sites development potential and can provide specialist input through our professional Partners.

We have considerable expertise in project managing multi-disciplinary consultancy teams to ensure that planning and environmental issues are swiftly identified, costs are minimised and the timely delivery of projects.
