With increasingly complex planning controls and policy guidance, the need for specialist planning advice has never been greater. Obtaining planning permission can increase the value of land and buildings significantly and it is important to obtain the right advice at the right time.

Our specialist planning department provides professional planning services for individuals and companies alike and can offer advice throughout the planning process, from feasibility studies to representations on development plans, making planning applications and appeals.

In conjunction with our specialist development and valuation surveyors, we can consider the optimum use of land in terms of its planning potential, market demand and end value.

With a capability to produce indicative designs and layouts and using sophisticated development appraisal software, we can quickly evaluate a range of development options. An in depth knowledge of occupier demand, rental and sale values and investment yields acquired from our agency activities ensures that this service is backed up by detailed information. We consider this service invaluable to both land owners and developers alike.
