If you own a property and you want to modify, alter or extend it, we can advise you on whether, in legal terms, the proposals your planning consultant, architect or agent has drawn up will be acceptable to the Local Planning Authority. You and your professional team can come to us at any stage of the project, whether or not you’ve started building, and even if the Local Planning Authority has already rejected the plan, or has started taking enforcement action.
Ask us, too, about planning appeals, listed buildings, conservation areas and the Green Belt, or about how your proposals could be affected by the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) or by Neighbourhood Planning or other new legislative provisions. We will help to resolve your queries.
Following years of experience within local government, we understand how the system works, who to speak to, and how to negotiate the best outcome. We have the qualifications and experience to give specialist, professional advice on all types of planning projects and assistance with all kinds of questions that might arise from your dealings with the Council. If you are a resident, or you run a business, or you would like to start one, and are applying for a licence to trade or a premises licence, or if you want to know more about how environmental regulations affect you, or want to make use of your powers under the Data Protection Act or Freedom of Information Act, we are here to help.
