Planning Development

Our Planning team pairs strategic insight of the planning process with local, ‘boots-on-the-ground’ intelligence to give our clients the real benefit of a truly national platform.

We are trusted advisers to both UK-based and international clients, delivering advantage and value across portfolios, strategic assets and transformational projects in both the private and public sectors.

‘Cradle-to-cradle’ planning services

The team advises on all aspects of the development-planning lifecycle: from project inception through to local delivery. These ‘cradle-to-cradle’ services include:

  • Pre-acquisition planning due diligence
  • Post-acquisition advice on development aspirations and asset enhancement initiatives
  • The pursuit of development/redevelopment/enhancement options through the planning process
  • Ongoing construction advice, ensuring all conditions are discharged and changes approved
  • Client-led asset enhancement and protection programmes via local plan representations
  • Planning due diligence for asset disposals

Our services cover the full range of planning applications, appeals and legal challenges, representations on emerging plans, evidence-based research and insight to support proposals, and project managing sub consultants.

Our focus on insight

Drawing on our unrivalled market-facing expertise and leveraging local contacts, we have a relentless focus on insight. This has given us a deep understanding of both the private and public sectors, which, in turn, enables us to foster the right relationships to drive the best commercial outcomes for our clients.
