Planning applications are the cornerstone for the planning system. Obtaining planning permission can bring about significant gains and help to maximise the value of your property.
Acorus has Chartered Surveyors and Planning Consultants able to advise you on how best to obtain planning permission no matter the size of the project, providing expert advice on issues to be taken into account prior to submission to the Local Planning Authority through to decision.
Acorus Planning Consultants work predominately in the rural sector and have dealt with a large range of projects including the following:
- Agricultural dwellings
- Agricultural buildings
- Environmental Impact Assessments for intensive agriculture
- Equestrian development
- Housing development
- Barn conversions
- Prior approval applications under the General Permitted Development (England) Order
- Certificates of Lawfulness
- Agricultural occupancy conditions
You need to be aware of the planning implications or employ a consultant who is able to act in your best interests, as unfortunately planning applications are not straightforward and can be refused by the Local Planning Authority for a variety of reasons ranging from local opposition to objections from a statutory consultee.
Should this occur then Acorus also provide a comprehensive planning appeal service and have extensive experience of all three types of appeal:
- Written Representations
- Informal Hearing
- Public Inquiry
