North Yorkshire Planning Applications

Since our inception in 2007, we have made many Planning applications in North Yorkshire. This means that our application services meet the highest of standards. In this business its very often a case of who you know.

North Yorkshire Planning Applications often attract Community Infrastructure Levy charges, especially if the designs include over 100 sq. m of internal floor area. Certain exceptions apply, including house extensions and self build homes.

It is important to understand the policies, requirements and limitations demanded by the council. These are critical in ensuring projects are approved in a timely and cost effective manner, ensuring our clients maximise the potential of their high quality developments.

North Yorkshire Planning Permission

Due to our proximity to the Council and the high number of applications submitted, we have a fantastic record for obtaining planning permission in North Yorkshire for a wide range of residential and commercial schemes. These include replacement dwellings, self builds, extensions (including green belt) and large remodelling projects in the area.

North Yorkshire Planning Appeals

We have also been successful in obtaining permission via the planning appeals in North Yorkshire. This is where an applicant has a right to appeal to the Planning Inspectorate where a decision has not been reached on an application within the statutory period, or if the application has been refused. An appeal can also be made if the applicant doesn’t agree with the conditions on a planning approval. An applicant typically has 12 weeks from the decision to make an appeal for house extensions.

North Yorkshire Planning Policies

Following the merger of eight previous councils, North Yorkshire Planning Policies are in a state of flux. This provides opportunities, but also challenges, so appointing Plande as your consultant ensures your project obtains approval in a timely and cost effective manner.

Residential and domestic projects’ policies are quite detailed, which could be seen as prescriptive and restrictive. Our creative strategic approach means we have can obtain North Yorkshire planning approvals where the designs appeared to have contradicted planning policies.

For commercial projects, the Core Strategy provides the main policies for development control purposes.

Other supplementary planning guidance, including Conservation Area plans, parking standards among many others also need to be considered when applying for planning permission.
