Government planning policy is contained in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). This covers all national planning issues, such as planning for housing, shops, offices and good design. It is the main statement of Government policy on how development should happen in England. 


Local Planning Authorities will have their own planning policies and development plans and we use these to understand a sites potential and offer solutions for a particular site. 


At an early stage of a project, we undertake thorough investigations into national and local planning policy to present the feasibility of a project and offer solution or opportunity for a site. 


Our service at this stage typically includes:

  • Thorough investigation into national and local planning policy relating to your site

  • Opportunities for funding, tax relief or other financial incentives relating to your site

  • Obtaining quotes for any reports required

  • Meeting with our clients to discuss the planning policies and their impact on their project
