With increasing case loads, pressure on resources and a focus on regenerating towns and cities, local authority planning departments are coming under more strain than ever before. As a result, many local authorities are struggling and in some cases, failing to meet their planning statutory requirements and government targets. Our planning resilience service provides support to authorities who do not have the in-house capacity to meet demand. In doing this, we free up resource availability so you can focus on the services that matter most to your residents and businesses.
Development management is the end to end management of planning applications in a positive way to foster the delivery of sustainable development. It’s about looking for solutions rather than problems and working proactively with applicants to secure development that improve economic, social and environmental conditions of the area for residents and businesses. With our vast commercial understanding and industry experience, we can help you help make informed decisions regarding your planning and development needs to support your projects in a compliant and well-managed manner.
We are experts across all fields of policy involved with planning. With the ability to handle all or part of the planning service, we offer project management to the delivery of 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.
