Our aim is to guide our clients through the Town Planning system, and by being involved with scheme drawings at an early stage, we make sure all applications are presented positively to the Local Authority and are compliant with planning policy. Our services provide full monitoring through the application period and attendance at Planning Committee if required.
Our services offer project management throughout the process. This may include obtaining input from professionals from a variety of different disciplines. We have the knowledge and experience to be able to manage relationships with external Consultants, Architects and the Council. We can eliminate any stress involved in the application process, and carry out any follow up Appeal or Enforcement work.
We work with many Architects and can recommend a range of practices suitable for individual projects. Our in-house Architect can provide drawings for small domestic and commercial projects.
For complex legal cases, we have direct access to the Planning Bar.

Areas of work
The resurgence of the film industry in recent years, encouraged through the government tax incentives, has triggered an influx of filming, making use of the world-class studio and technical facilities in the UK. This has increased demand to film on location, for which planning permission is often required.
