Although the act of submitting a planning application is often seen as an administrative activity and is just a small part of the development process, it is surprising how many planning applications are found to be invalid upon first submission and cannot be registered by the planning authority.
Planning Applications need to be carefully presented to ensure that the development is seen in its best light and this may include the submission of Design and Access Statements or other supporting reports, such as noise assessments, listed building appraisals, traffic assessments, air quality assessments, archaeological assessments, contaminated land surveys, ecological surveys, energy statements, drainage assessments, flood risk assessments, land stability or erosion reports, visual impact assessments, or a wide range of other supporting information.
Tricorne Planning can help to ensure that the client’s application has the correct supporting information; that all of the required forms are correctly filled in and signed; that application fees are correctly calculated; that the drawings supplied are both accurate and cover all the required elevations; and that the application is fit to be validated.
It may just be admin, but if you get it wrong it will delay your project and cause no end of frustration, both for you and for the planning department.
We can also assist clients by undertaking pre-application discussions with the planning authority and, if concerns are raised by the planning officer, negotiating to get the best possible outcome for the client
