Planning Consultancy


Whether you are looking to expand and develop your existing farm business, convert existing buildings for alternative uses or a completely new green field development we can help. 


Most development will require planning consent of one kind or another, whether it be a change of use to allow a third party to store materials in agricultural buildings, extending a farm yard or a new farm workers dwelling or a major housing development.

Planning is a minefield of complexities and we can provide advice and guidance on the development of an idea to ensure it complies with the relevant Planning Policy. The services we can provide include:

  • Pre application advice requests
  • Outline and Full planning applications
  • Approval of reserved matters
  • Listed Building and Conservation Area Consents
  • Advertisements consents
  • Certificates of Lawful Existing Use or development
  • Applications for Prior Approval
  • Removal or variation of conditions
  • Applications for Permitted Development
  • Agricultural Appraisals to support Workers Dwellings
  • Planning Appeals
  • Acting on your behalf during enforcement proceedings

Where technical surveys and reports are required we can co-ordinate these as part of the service by calling upon our expert contacts.

The rules for each type of development may be slightly different so if you are unsure or would like some guidance we can provide as much information as required. As planning consultants, chartered surveyors and valuers we can provide a holistic approach to planning to ensure the most suitable development is sought to maximise your assets.
