Our Residential Planning Team advise across all sectors, including brownfield and greenfield development, to assist our clients in obtaining residential planning permission. We have a strong track record in urban regeneration and mixed-use schemes, greenfield urban extensions, permitted development, one off houses and schemes that affect heritage assets including conservation areas and listed buildings.
We regularly advise housebuilders, promoters, developers, and site owners on scheme feasibility, technical compliance, the provision of affordable housing and scheme viability. We work with design professionals and frequently project manage planning submissions at the pre-application and application stages coordinating sustainability, transportation, heritage and environmental technical supporting submissions.
We are adept at putting together robust, thought through applications and navigating them through the planning process, engaging with stakeholders and establishing cooperative relationships with strategic and local planning authorities. We have had considerable success in achieving high density, estate regeneration, greenfield urban extensions and air rights development.
We advise on and implement strategic land allocations through the development plan process and if necessary we give expert evidence at examinations and appeals.
Once planning permission is obtained our Residential Planning Team frequently remain involved in the project to discharge all pre-commencement planning conditions and that all Section 106 legal obligations are complied with to ensure there is no delay to the development starting on site. If changes to the approved development are required before or during construction, we also manage this process and advise the design team what is necessary and obtain the appropriate consents from the Local Planning Authority. We also advise on Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and negotiate reductions with the Local Planning Authority where exemptions or relief can be achieved.
Our Team have experience in securing residential planning permission on a wide range of projects from roof extensions and changes of use, to high density tall buildings and large-scale urban extensions. Examples of our recent experience can be seen within the Projects page of the website.
