Since 1999, our diverse team of specialists has led the planning process for major infrastructure development projects with the technical knowledge and skill that comes only with experience.
We help our clients apply for planning permissions, refining briefs, and offering strategic advice so that when the time comes to apply for planning permission, each project is optimised for success.
We offer a range of assessment and application services, from preparing drawings and coordinating environmental impact assessments to submitting planning applications and supporting information.
We understand the different planning regimes that apply across the UK and beyond, including the Isle of Man. We can advise on the different routes to a planning consent that apply to larger scale developments, including Development Consent Orders (in England) and Developments of National Significance (in Wales).
Our planning teams regularly make representations to the Development Plan examination process, appear at planning inquiries and public examinations, and provide expert witness services.
Strategic site searches, identification of potential alternative sites for development and leading planning and research studies all fall within our planning strategy remit.
We can also engage with and consult stakeholders to facilitate strategies and programmes on behalf of our clients. Public engagement and consultations are also an increasingly important part of many of our projects.
Our advisory service covers all areas of planning policy, guidance, legislation and permitted development rights under the General Permitted Development Order (GPDO).
We use our specialist knowledge to help clients navigate the complexities of consent orders or special designations and advise on whether environmental impact assessments or specialist studies are needed to support a planning application.
