Often we are called in to help when the local authority Conservation Officer or Planning Officer does not like your proposals. We can help work through the issues, attend site meetings and help ensure that you can achieve a satisfactory resolution of the problem.
We can do any survey work required, prepare drawings for you, submit the application for you (normally electronically using the ‘Planning Portal’) and deal with any queries from the Conservation Officer. We can help from design to completion or just when you need us.
Knowing how the planning system works and having over 25 years’ experience of working on the inside for English Heritage, Local Planning Authorities and the Environment Agency means that we can help provide high quality practical advice and design solutions for your development projects.
