Planning and Approvals

The planning system in the UK aims to create better places for people to live, work and play through the management of the development and use of land and buildings. These decisions affect us all and are made in order to improve, or preserve, the areas in which we live. The planning system influences everything around us, from the jobs that are available in our locality to where our children may be able to live when they leave home. 

This is the bigger picture. On a smaller scale, this system also controls how we can develop and adapt our own properties.

With many years of experience in this field, we can offer advice on the permissions that may be required for your building or alternations, and we can seek approval on your behalf for this and many other aspects of the Town & Country Planning Act.

The process is not always straightforward and each local authority interprets planning legislation in slightly different ways.  With the assistance of our Chartered Town Planner, with over 30 years’ experience, we can navigate these trickier scenarios; preparing and submitting additional supporting documentation to obtain approval for projects that may challenge the planning system.
