Planning application fees are often thousands of pounds and mistakes can be costly, we always strive to deliver cost effective solutions. For this reason we recommend to clients contemplating relatively ambitious proposals to consider an initial feasibility report that will analyse proposals in relation to current planning policy and can include other advisers from our professional network. It highlights any areas of weakness and provides an indication as to the likely costs and chances of success. Armed with this information one is able to make an informed decision based on attitude to risk. All of the work undertaken at this stage can be incorporated in to the planning application making efficient use of the time and money invested.
