Appraisals Strategy & Teambuilding
To maximise your chances of obtaining a good planning permission, you need to start with a proper understanding, adopt the right strategy and engage and manage the right professional team.
How we can help you:
Every planning situation is unique: different issues, different policies, different stakeholders. Following the right strategy, with the right professional team, is essential. We not only have some of the most experienced strategists, but also very effective planning project team managers.
It is essential to start by thoroughly understanding the site and its planning context. Amongst many other things, an appraisal will sometimes reveal things that can be done without planning permission; uncover previous decisions that may give valuable pointers to the best way forward; and identify precedent decisions nearby.
It is rare that there is only one route through the planning labyrinth, and different approaches will carry different costs, risks and timescales. We have considerable experience of advising on strategy, and, where appropriate, we can bolster this by instructing counsel.
Once a strategy has been agreed, it is necessary to recruit, brief and manage a suitable professional team. Where appropriate, we will be pleased to take on this responsibility for the client. Ultimately, it is important that the planning application material is consistent, and makes the planning case as effectively as possible. We are the best placed to achieve this.
