Planning Applications and Development

Planning and Development

If you are planning a large-scale building or construction project, it is likely that you will need to secure planning permission.

Employing the services of a Chartered Surveyor that has experience in dealing with Local Authority Planning Departments can significantly speed up the process and improve the chances of your project gaining the approval needed.

Matthew Parkinson, Chartered Surveyor, and his colleagues are able to provide professional support at all stages of the development cycle. Our services in this area cover:

  • Change of Use Planning applications
  • Extensions to an existing building that fall outside the scope of ‘Permitted Development’
  • Building works to Listed buildings
  • Conservation Area planning permission
  • Construction of new commercial buildings
  • New residential developments

Matthew Parkinson and the team have a wealth of experience in acting on behalf of both private property owners and commercial clients. We have a strong track record of securing planning permission for a wide range of building works, from extensions through to new-build residential developments.

We are able to assist clients at every stage of the project, from site surveys and architectural drawings showing both existing and proposed plans, through to completing the planning application itself and dealing with any subsequent correspondence. Our services can be instructed at any stage during the project but for the highest chance of success, it’s advisable to contact us in the initial stages.

In addition to acting on behalf of property owners and construction companies, we can also represent land owners who are thinking of selling their land for development purposes.
