We provide planning services to a variety of educational clients, including schools, colleges, universities and student accommodation.
From helping universities expand or rationalise their estate, to assisting student accommodation providers with obtaining planning permissions, we work with clients to produce estate strategies and masterplans.
We have also worked with a wide range of educational and other institutions looking to dispose of surplus or excess land or buildings, which is achieved through collaborating with our commercial and development.
Our approach is always to try to work alongside local authorities to achieve consents locally wherever possible. We work with key stakeholders to ensure that the number of objections to planning application is minimised as far as possible. We help run public consultations and exhibitions. For the larger proposals we work with local authorities to get sites allocated in Local Plans, and attend examinations in public where necessary.
