ADAS planning consultants have a wealth of experience in providing pre planning advice and undertaking planning appraisals of sites in order to assist clients in maximising the value of their land. ADAS provides planning advice to developers, landowners, agents and local government clients.
We have extensive experience in engaging and managing pre application submission with local planning authorities. We work closely with planning officers and key stakeholders to develop a reasonable and proportionate scope for applications to reduce costs associated with the development process. Early involvement of planners in the development process can increase the chance of an application gaining consent and can highlight issues early so they might be cost effectively addressed in the design process. This can reduce costs and delays in the process.
We have a firm understanding of local and national planning policies, technical and environmental constraints and experience of facilitating and delivering community consultation and stakeholder engagement.
We can carry out initial desktop studies and site appraisals to ensure there are no fundamental barriers to taking sites forward and ensure that any risks are both managed and minimised.
We have the advantage that we are also able to seek advice from our in house consultants covering a range of specialisms from archaeology and heritage, landscape, air and water quality and ecology to help inform and shape proposals at an early stage.
We can advise you on whether any other consents may be required such as Listed Building Consent, Conservation Area Consent, Environmental Health Permits and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
Early engagement of our planning staff will help to answer queries such as:
- When is planning permission required?
- How likely you are to get planning permission for the development you want?
- What type of planning permission do you require?
- What are the planning risks and material considerations you need to take into account along the way?
