• As an integrated planning and heritage consultancy, we deal with the full range of applications, including outline, full and reserved matters applications.
  • When a multi-disciplinary team is required, we have all the skills and experience to maximise the chances of securing consent. We anticipate and tackle all the issues comprehensively and are trusted to apply rigour to the process. Consequently, we have an excellent track record of success with planning applications.

We prepare:

Planning statements

We assess development proposals against local and national planning policies and provide guidance to demonstrate that all the relevant issues have been considered and resolved.

Design and access statements

We write and/or edit design and access statements, which are a statutory requirement for many planning and listed building applications. Their purpose is to set out the concepts and principles that have informed the development proposals.

Heritage statements

These build upon the findings of statements of heritage significance and justify a proposed development by testing it against relevant national and local heritage/planning policy and best practice.

We research and compile:

Environmental statements

An environmental impact assessment of major development proposals

Sustainability statements

That demonstrate how proposals have taken full account of sustainable development policy and guidance

Statements of community engagement

That summarise the results of public and other pre-application public consultations
