We would recommend that it is best to initially assume that planning permission will be necessary – even if you deem the works to be minor.
In preparing your case for the planning authority, S&C Slatter can offer invaluable assistance by either working with your own planning team as specialist advisor, or by taking lead responsibility for the whole process. When it comes to observing strict planning and compliance requirements, you can be assured we offer the expertise and guidance you need.
Our integrated approach to leading your planning application embraces all stages from concept to completion including liaison with local planning authorities, statutory bodies and project stakeholders.
Importantly we have the technical and commercial expertise to ensure that any planning parameters or constraints are successfully addressed in ways which sustain project viability and integrity.
Through collaborative team working, we make sure that all interested parties are kept engaged and informed during the application period. A lack of engagement can often result in misunderstandings, extended timelines even planning objections, so we work hard to uphold thorough and consistent communication and achieve a seamless outcome.
