Town Planning Consultancy
Development proposals in the UK are governed by ever changing local and national planning policies. Understanding these policies is vital if a proposal is to stand any chance of being delivered. At Caldecotte Group our team of in house planners are constantly reviewing changes to planning policy at both local and national levels.
By doing so, we can ensure that when we submit a planning application, it will have the best chance of being approved. We can project manage a proposal from the initial feasibility stage, right through to the delivery of a planning consent.
We offer the same strategic planning and development advice to all of our clients, no matter how big or small. Our team of expert planners can undertake a wide range of planning casework across the UK; from minor and major residential schemes, mixed-use and commercial projects to lodging a simple objection letter.
Our team is able to provide advice on the relevant planning policies applicable to a particular property or site. Together with architect practices, Caldecotte Group can liaise and prepare a planning policy compliant scheme.
Once a scheme has been produced, Caldecotte can appraise the development, generating residual land values and investment yields among other metrics depending on the inputs and the client’s requirements and objectives.
Caldecotte Group is able to formally and informally approach Local Planning Authorities on our clients’ behalf in order to seek opinion on proposals which are contentious or where planning policy is not well defined.
This enables the best advice to be provided and enable the preparation of a short or long term strategy in order to fulfil objectives.
Planning Applications & Appeals
Securing planning permission can be a particularly tricky process and each type of application has its own potential difficulties. Knowing how to navigate these is crucial if a successful outcome is to be achieved.
Our planners have the knowledge base to prepare, submit and monitor all types of proposal at both application and appeal stage (if necessary).
