Applications and Appraisals

We undertake all types of application on your behalf, from householder extensions to proposed new builds, change of use of premises and Certificates of Lawful Use/Development etc.

We offer an appraisal service as a ‘stand alone’ instruction which can be undertaken from as little as £995.00 with no obligation to move forward should you not wish to do so. With an excellent track record of successfully negotiating planning consents on behalf of our Clients, we will only ever advise to move forward should our findings be supportive of your proposals.

Appeals / Enforcement

The appeal system can be a very complex area of planning and planning law. Should you have received a refusal of planning permission, we are able to appraise the original application and supporting documents/the Local Authority Decision Notice in order to advise as to the best corse of action.

We are also able to assist you with all types of enforcement action which may have been taken against you, including Planning Contravention Notices. It is important to act fast. Many Clients have attempted to undergo the process themselves and at the last minute, realised they needed assistance.

Ways To Pay

Unlike many other professional Practices, we offer two ways in which to pay for the services you require.

The first is a Pay As you Go Scheme (PAYGS), which entails work charged on an hourly basis and billed either monthly or following a particular stage of work, with invoices raised to be paid within 14 days following issue.

The second is our Advance Payment Scheme (APS). Such is billed on a discounted hourly rate and the median of your quoted hours billed in advance. This ensures that you have a set amount of hours worth of work and helps you budget accordingly.

With regard to providing a reference for Mr Alexis Anderson-Jones, we have worked alongside Alexis for the past couple of years on some interesting and sometimes quite complex planning regulated applications and regularisation applications. We generally provide the architectural support and Alexis, who fronts the application and deals with the client direct on planning matters, will generally structure the application in the best format to ensure that the planning regulations and general policies are being adhered too. His work is exemplary and he is very precise in his execution of the varied and complex planning tasks involved. He is very well versed in the planning regulations and has strong knowledge of the general planning system with his string background in that similar field to the local authority planning officers. Project coordination with the design team is always on point so that the design team are working together to ensure the best outcome for the client. Not only is he a pleasure to work with we find that he has a unique drive and steely determination to ensure that submitted applications have been prepared with the best possible chance of obtaining approval, he is able to combat any unusual planning officer opinions and offer valued solutions to some planning issues that may arise during the course of the application phase.
