Planning & building control
We can provide local authorities with immediate planning and building control resilience support. Our service is designed for local authorities who need immediate solutions and a flexible service which can be switched on and off as required. More specifically, we can assist local authorities that do not have the in-house capacity to meet their service demands or the in-house capability and expertise to deal with certain planning requirements.
Our services include:
Planning policy and consultancy
We have an experienced team with strong knowledge of existing and emerging national policy and how to apply this at a local level for your local authority. We can handle all or part of the planning service from project management; delivering the full range of planning policy documents and providing consultancy advice on specific schemes.
Planning development management
We have unrivalled experience of development management in a local government environment, including the unique relationships between applicants, developers, Councillors and the local community.
We offer a practical approach to building control. This helps you to maximise financial efficiencies and have assurance on designs at the earliest possible stage of any building project.
Minerals and waste
