Claremont Planning is an independent consultancy specialising in tailored planning services that directly respond to client requirements. We are able to provide initial advice on prospects, as well as informing design, providing planning reports and negotiating effectively to achieve planning consent or allocation.

Claremont Planning specialises in development planning, providing advice on the most effective way of realising consents, the delivery of projects and how to maximise site potential. For clients with development aspirations, we can give guidance upon required planning consents, the opportunity to deliver a site allocation and how to maximise the chances of achieving them.

The ability to provide robust advice is key alongside professional input when necessary, whilst delivering best value and seeking to resolve planning issues effectively. Establishing a robust planning strategy at the outset of a scheme and leading a consultant team to a favourable outcome is the end goal for Claremont Planning so that success is achieved for our clients as well as us.

*Site Appraisals *Pre-application Advice *Planning Applications *Design and Access Statements *Public Consultation and Committee Briefings *Discharge of Planning Conditions *Planning Appeals *Expert Witness *Strategic Planning Promotion *Local Plan Representations *Neighbourhood Plans *Examinations *EIA Screening, Scoping and Preparation

We are experienced in presenting our findings to local authorities informally and at Local Plan Examinations, whilst utilising an evidence base to argue for the appropriate level of housing within a district and its distribution. Related to this is the ability to provide the necessary evidence to demonstrate sustainable benefits, particularly in respect of Economic and Social Impacts.

Claremont Planning’s distinction and quality of offer is vitally important and informs the manner that work is approached and the consideration of clients. The core value adopted is to consider a tailored approach for each client and a specific strategy for each project – incorporating new methodologies and approaches when necessary.
