Planning policy – we support the full range of planning policy documents, including local plans and supplementary planning documents; community infrastructure levy charging schedules; local development schemes; annual monitoring reports and statements of community involvement.
Planning validation – our planning validation service helps clients to handle their workload, clear application backlogs and meet service commitments by validating all types of electronic and paper planning applications.
