Planning & Development

Our aim is to guide your development successfully through the planning process, making the journey as simple as possible.

Planning Applications and Appeals

We can provide a full range of planning application services to support everything from the conversion of a small outbuilding or the creation of a single dwelling to a strategic mixed-use development proposal or a renewable energy project.

We are able to offer a broad range of planning services to support rural businesses and property owners. Our advice and applications regularly include:

  • Residential, commercial and mixed-use schemes

  • Strategic promotion of land

  • Agricultural dwellings and barn conversions

  • Renewable Energy projects

  • Farm Buildings

  • Change of Use, Certificate of Lawfulness (CLEUD) and Enforcement Proceedings

  • Planning Appeals, High Court Challenges and Judicial Reviews

  • Environmental Impact Assessment screening, scoping and submission.

  • Compulsory Purchase/Development Consent Order Applications – Land Assembly, BOR, Consultation, Survey Access, Site Acquisition.

Promotion & Option Agreements

We can advise on the suitability of your site and its development potential in relation to National and Local planning policies and can explore the commercial merits of alternative development mixes against planning risk.

Sites with potential can be directly promoted through the Local Development Framework process or professional development partners who can share the risk and cost of the planning process with you.


Having achieved a valuable planning allocation we can advise on the most suitable method of disposing of your site and assemble the necessary elements to maximise value. Sales can be structured to release equity over the short, medium or longer term.

“Call us now to discuss your requirements in confidence.”
