Frontload the process by engaging with the Local Authority at an early stage

Where the impact of projects is particularly subjective, early engagement with the Planning Authority through pre-application discussions can be an important step to understand the Council’s view. This allows you to frontload the process and resolve potential issues before a full Planning Application is submitted. We can prepare a well-argued written Planning Statement to support these early-stage discussions and negotiate with the council - at an affordable price.

What is a planning statement?

Planning Statements play a vital role in any successful planning application. A quality Planning Statement provides a balanced overview of the intended construction works that justifies the project. It identifies the context and need for the development, and considers how the proposed development conforms with relevant local and national planning policies – providing robust argument to support your case.


Do I need a planning statement and why?

A Planning Statement will support your planning application and better your chance of approval. The Statement argues how a proposed development is suitable to the site and setting while conforming with any Development Plan and national planning guidance.
