This office provides assistance with all types of planning applications to achieve planning permission. This typically involves the project management of the planning application. This includes sourcing of appropriate and cost efficient drawings, the co-ordination of the project team including liaison with the client, the preparation of all required paperwork, negotiations with planning officials (pre-planning meetings) and the preparation of a planning consultants report (planning appraisal) to support the development proposal. This report serves to demonstrate how the planning application is compliant with legislative and planning policy requirements with a view to securing planning permission. Responses are made to further information requests and clarification requests where required. In addition, the skill set available provides a valuable support service to engineers and architects.
