Old Trafford Planning Permission Consultants Approvals Applications

Trafford Planning Applications

Since our inception in 2007, we have made many Trafford Planning applications and are Accredited Agents for the Council, meaning that our applications meet a certain high quality standard.

Trafford Planning Applications often attract Community Infrastructure Levy tariffs especially if the designs include over 100 sq. m of internal floor area, although several exceptions are exempt (including house extensions, self build homes etc)

When submitting a planning application understanding of the various policies, requirements and limitations are critical to ensure that the projects can be approved in a timely and cost-effective manner, enabling high quality developments, maximising the potential of our clients sites.


Trafford Planning Permission

Due to our proximity to the Council the number of applications submitted mean that we have a fantastic record for obtaining Trafford Planning Permission for a wide range of residential and commercial schemes, including self build homes, domestic house extensions and large remodelling, green belt house extensions and replacement dwellings among many others.

We have also been successful in obtaining Planning Permission via the Planning Appeal route, challenging the Council’s refusal of planning.


Trafford Planning Policies

Forming part of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework, Trafford Planning Policies are going through a state of flux which provides opportunities but also challenges and therefore appointing an experienced knowledgeable RTPI Planning Consultant to ensure your Trafford Planning project obtains approval in a timely and cost effective manner.

For residential and domestic projects these planning policies are quite detailed and could potentially seen to be quite prescriptive and restrictive. Our creative strategic approach has meant we have obtained Trafford planning approvals where initially the designs appear to contradict planning policies.

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

Other supplementary planning guidance, including the Conservation Area plans, parking standards among many others (various links etc) also need to be considered when considering applying for planning permission.
