Site Appraisals

Whether you want to extend your home, develop agricultural buildings or own land. We will assess and provide you with a report outlining the potential and possibilities in both design and planning aspects, taking into account the latest planning laws and policy. If you are in the process of purchasing a property we can provide you with pre-purchase planning and design potential appraisals. Doing this before you buy can ensure you make the right decision.

Planning Applications

We have over 30 years of planning experience. We have built up good working relationships with many planning departments in the South East and will liaise with Planning Officers on your behalf to ensure that planning applications are acceptable for both you and the local authority. Being a period property specialist company, we also have comprehensive knowledge of building conservation and work closely with Council Conservation Officers.

Planning Refusals and Appeals

Have you had a planning application refused? We can help. With our experience of planning policy and application, we can re-submit applications after liaising with Planning Officers to establish potential solutions. When solutions cannot be found, we can submit planning appeals on your behalf.

Neighbouring Applications

Do you have a neighbour who is submitting a planning application that adversely affects you? We can help to resolve issues on your behalf by negotiating with the neighbour’s Planning Agent and/or the planning department.

Specialist Services

We work mainly in the South East of England – Sussex, Kent, Hampshire, Surrey and London. Further travel by negotiation.

We also prepare and submit building regulation applications to ensure your project complies with the latest standards. Structural engineering and Technical services are also provided.

We offer specialist services on a consultancy basis. We can work with your building contractor (we can recommend contractors in the South East of England) to ensure that all work is carried out to the specific requirements as detailed in your plans. We have extensive experience of working with diverse traditional materials and the techniques required to apply them.

As part of a listed building application, we can arrange an archaeological report that will date your property; provide material analysis and details of the history of the building. This is usually conducted as part of a listed property planning application, but is also an interesting insight that is unique to your property.
