Plande is a team of highly skilled RTPI certified Chartered Town Planners offering planning consultancy services right across the UK. We work with individuals, developers, land-owners, builders, architects and planning authorities making sure you get the absolute best help and advice for your business, development, self-build or home improvement project.
Why Do I Need A Planning Consultant?
Obtaining planning permission from a local authority is not always as straightforward as it seems. It often requires specialist knowledge in interpreting local and national planning policies. Obtaining planning can be a minefield for the most seasoned builder never mind the layman, especially with legislation continually changing. Having Plande planning consultants by your side will not only make the process run as smoothly and cost-effective as possible, but will give you an independent authority to turn to.
As development enablers, our planning consultancy services are focused on achieving success. We’ll work closely and creatively with you, immersing ourselves in each project to get the desired outcome.
When Should I Engage With a Planning Consultancy?
If planning is refused for a project then it can be an uphill battle to get the decision overturned. It is therefore important to engage with us at the start of the process. An Architect will be able to help with design issues but they will not have the necessary planning experience especially with complicated projects. This is where Plande comes in. For Building Contractors then we will help you prepare a feasibility study to assess the viability of your project. Our experience is invaluable.
