Preparing planning applications is becoming increasingly complicated as Councils ask for more and more information to support proposals. Applications that might have been dealt with through a simple set of forms, plans and a letter five years ago may now require a large suite of accompanying documents.
In many cases it will be necessary to call on the assistance of various expert professionals. That’s why we’ve built up a trusted network of experts, including:
- highways and drainage engineers
- acoustics experts
- sustainability consultants
- energy efficiency experts
- landscape architects
- lighting experts
- public relations advisors
- specialist surveyors
Working together with the relevant professionals from our network helps us put together the strongest possible evidence to support a proposal. However we are always conscious of our clients’ budgets and only bring in outside expertise where we feel it will be of real benefit.
We are also happy to work with third party providers recommended by clients or their architects or other advisers. And when legal assistance is needed, we are able to instruct most planning barristers.
