We can provide Outline or Full Planning Applications. The planning process is often challenging and is becoming increasingly more complex, therefore if the programme allows, we always recommend Pre-Application negotiations take place to lower the risk of refusal.
We liaise closely with planning, arboricultural and highway consultants to deliver robust planning applications. At this stage of the design process we aim to create collaborative, responsive yet practical solutions that meet strategic and local planning requirements in order to obtain approval.
Our work stage process is aligned with the RIBA 'Plan of Work' 2020
At this initial meeting we discuss how we can help you with your project.
We talk through the process, the services we can offer you and can give an outline timescale and fee information.
Most importantly coffee & cake is consumed.

This is the time to make initial outline queries to the relevant planning authorities.
