For those that own land or buildings suitable for development, it is important to engage with your council’s Local Plan sooner rather than later.
Local planning authorities are responsible for the Local Plan for their area. These set out a vision and framework for future development, addressing needs and opportunities in relation to housing, the economy, community facilities and infrastructure – as well as a basis for safeguarding the environment, adapting to climate change and ensuring good design.
We will guide you through the Local Plan process, review draft policies and their implications for your land and help you engage with the council to formulate a planning strategy that seizes local opportunities.
How we work with you
We are passionate about making the most of your interests and promoting land for development through the Local Plan process can be a smart move for landowners. We can advise on strategy and engagement, prepare and co-ordinate the submission of representations on your behalf and represent you at the Examination-in-Public, should you need it.
