Cheshire East Planning Applications

We have submitted many Planning Applications in East Cheshire since our formation in 2007. Our team members have worked locally in the area for almost 20 years.

We have been involved with a wide variety of different applications including obtaining approval for residential and commercial, house extensions, self-build homes, green belt house extensions and green belt replacement dwellings.

We also submit outline planning applications, reserved matters applications, householder applications, listed building consent, advertisement consent, prior approval and lawful development certificates among others.

Submitting pre-planning applications to Cheshire East Council for their informal advice can have benefits. It can help to understand what information is required to validate the application. Also, how the proposals conform to planning policies, as well as obtaining an opinion on the design merits and issues of the scheme.

The planning system is complex and fluid with numerous stakeholders and agendas. We submit high quality, robust planning applications to Cheshire East Council.

Applications play a crucial part in the construction industry to obtain consent for the development to go ahead. Appointing the right consultancy is essential to ensure the right permission is granted in a timely manner.

For developers, architects, businesses and private clients you’ll have the go-ahead to start construction. For landowners, you’ll have the reassurance that you’ve added value to your site.

Cheshire East Planning Permission

Obtaining permission can often be time-consuming and costly. The changes to the planning system including the NPPF and 5-year housing land supply requirements have created a turbulent time for many authorities.  While the new Cheshire East Planning Policies are starting to take effect, many of the older policies from the original borough councils are still used for development control purposes.

We have submitted many Cheshire East planning applications including obtaining approval and consent for residential and commercial, house extensions, self-build homes, green belt house extensions and green belt replacement dwellings among others.

Appointing the right planning team which has have experience of obtaining permission is critical to ensuring an appropriate, timely and cost-efficient approval.

Obtaining planning permission from Cheshire East Council is arguably one of the most important elements in the development process and the right professional assistance is vital to ensure that consent is granted.
