Planning Applications

ADAS’ planning consultants have delivered high quality, affordable planning applications for all types of development from small scale domestic projects to major strategic sites in both urban and rural areas.  We deliver successful consents for:

  • Residential schemes
  • Renewable energy (solar, wind, anaerobic digestion, biomass, hydropower)
  • Agricultural developments
  • Farm diversification schemes
  • Commercial and industrial projects
  • Infrastructure (railway, roads, canals)

ADAS Planning Consultants will provide advice on how best to proceed with your project and make sure you get the right type of consent for your development, for example some sites may benefit from gaining outline planning permission to establish the principle of development whereas others will benefit from a full planning application from the outset. We have also delivered a large number of Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) for a diverse number of developments.

We will make sure you have the right documents to put your application together and negotiate with the Local Planning Authority on your behalf both during the decision-making and post decision process. We always seek to minimise requirements for an application, conditions and any pre commencement information.

We co-ordinate multi-disciplinary teams of internal and external specialists to complete your application on time and to budget.  We are happy to project manage your application, or work alongside a project manager to ensure all parts of the application are robust and meet statutory requirements.  We will write clear, concise and supportive Planning Statements, Design and Access Statements and complete all necessary documentation for you.  We can also carry out stakeholder and community consultation to secure buy-in for your project.  We will help you deliver the best project for your site.

The team continues to keep up to date with the planning system, government guidance and appeal decisions to inform future development proposals and explore innovative ways to consult with local communities, politicians and local authorities, whilst continuing to meet the needs of our clients.

For further information take a look at our projects and ADAS wider services or contact us to find out more.

We are complimented by our in-house expert archaeology and heritage, landscape, air and water quality and ecology teams.
