Our brand of advice is invaluable to any scale of project be it a pre-acquisition survey or multi-million pound re-development project.
The core work of the Planning team is the resolution of planning projects in a diverse range of situations. As such we are ideally placed to advise a wide range of clients upon the planning merits of any particular scheme.
Our multi-disciplinary approach enables us to contribute to all stages of the development process with the planning division coordinating projects from initial consultation with authorities through to appeal by way of written representation hearing or Enquiry, as appropriate, to the development proposed.
