Planning consultancy services
Planning can be a complicated process. Fraught with difficulties and obstacles to overcome. Lots of jargon, policies to read and documentation to complete; or you can get Fusion 13 to do all the hard work for you.
We can interpret policies and identify solutions that mean your project is given the best chance of approval first time. We’ll research, assess and evaluate your options. Help you understand and negotiate your project through the system. Getting us involved at the start helps to reduce the uncertainty that trying to do it yourself brings. It can also reduce costs in the long run. Our experienced team of professionals know the rules and are qualified to deal with any issues that arise.
Site planning appraisals
This is the first step in assessing the merits of a proposed scheme. We can indicate at this early stage whether a successful outcome can be achieved in acquiring the necessary planning permission, through application or appeal.
Our integrated design disciplines mean our team can identify and understand the wider implications of any scheme. We can also design a fully integrated approach to produce deliverable, cost-effective and sustainable solutions.
Pre-application submissions and enquiries
We will co-ordinate fact finding and provide information to the local planning authority on a future proposal. We will discuss the proposal with them and the likelihood of it gaining planning permission. Our aim is to make a future planning application which has their full support.
We manage this process for our clients from start to finish, advising on the most suitable means to achieve planning permission. If required, we organise and coordinate the input of supplementary services essential for your project. We can also provide representation at planning committees. Once planning approval is obtained we can also support you in the discharge of conditions.
Occasionally it may be necessary to appeal the local planning authority’s decision. We provide a full planning appeal service for all types of development. We can also represent clients at hearings and enquiries.
