With recent changes in the planning system and more to follow it is now more important
than ever to get it right first time !
With a particular specialism in the Development of the Rural and Historic Environment
we can make the whole process much easier and less stressful and often save you significant
money in the process !
Have you asked youself:
Is planning permission really necessary or could you have been deemed to have been
granted it ?
What consents and submissions are necessary for your project
How to avoid cowboy builders and escalating bills
Implications of receiving and implementing permissions
County and Local Plans and Policies and Government Statements
Should I appeal against a refusal or enforcement notice, how do I do it and what
time constriants are there ? What are the costs and what is the liklihood of winning.
How do I combine the functional requirements of my proposal with the aesthetics desired
What requirements might the local authority reasonably require and how can I circumvent
What are the implications of conditions.
Will it be possible to implement the permission or have you obtained consent on something
that cannot be built due to a failure of it being able to comly with building regulations.
It is not the planners responsibility to verify this.
Obtaining Planning or Listed Buildings Consent is only the first of several hurdles
that are necessary before your dream can become a reallity. It is important not to
skimp in the hope of saving money, it nearly always turns out to be a false economy.
