Our Planning, Architecture & Development team find opportunities, deliver innovative ideas and solve problems, with a constant eye on delivering value.

We start with the step that many consultants forget about, discovering what it is the client really wants. Having established the client’s needs, we then put together an appropriate team including our in-house specialist surveyors to deliver the project.

Whether it’s planning permission, option agreements, strategic land promotion, enforcement advice or the feasibility of development property our Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Royal Institute of British Architect (RIBA) qualified professionals will deliver solutions for you. With honest and impartial advice our specialists advise on: development planning; strategic planning; enforcement; strategic promotion; restrictive covenants; ransom and access issues.

For those who want to develop their land or property we assess options against planning policy then deliver the application, including appeal where necessary. We can also utilise our internal architectural team to provide designs where needed. Experienced in gaining planning permission for conversions, new builds and certificates of lawful use, our reliable and professional team are able to guide you through the process from pre-application advice to appeal and beyond to sale.

If you are facing difficulty with the planning office, completing an application you haven’t done before or if you need specific technical knowledge we work with you to overcome problems you might be facing.

For land owners, we negotiate option and promotion agreements and get the deal over line. If you’re a developer or house builder then we help you find development or housing land to suit your brief. Understanding value is key to the success of our planning & development team. Where clients need development land valuations, our specialist team excel in providing impartial, expert advice.

Highly proficient in negotiation, problem solving and project management, our team of specialists help you to understand the complex planning process in a variety of sectors including residential, commercial, energy and agriculture. Applying knowledge of complex legislation and policies to your specific need we work with you to deliver your objectives.
