PLANNING SUPPORT

Over the years we have helped some clients on other planning matters as they have arisen, either during the preparation of their neighbourhood plan or afterwards. We have reviewed and refined our planning service offer and it is now available to all our neighbourhood plan clients and to other town and parish councils located in local planning authority areas where we support neighbourhood plans.

The service includes:

1

making representations on planning applications, including pre-app consultations and masterplans

2

making the case for Secretary of State Call-Ins and Recoveries of proposals in conflict with a made or well-progressed neighbourhood plan

3

acting as expert witnesses at planning appeals

4

working with land interests to bring forward sites allocated in made plans

5

making representations on emerging Local Plans, AAPs, SPDs and other planning-related documents (e.g. Joint Spatial Strategies), including participating at public inquiries

6

designing client monitoring processes for made Plans

7

facilitating orientation sessions for clients and their local planning authority development management officers on newly made Plans.

We design our service offers so they are tailor made to clients’ specific needs and budgets, either on a project-by-project basis or as an ‘as and when needed’ retained service.
