We can quickly grasp client’s current operational requirements and business needs and are well versed in explaining, in plain English, how client’s activities are compatible with local authority objectives and how they, as well as the industries in which they operate, benefit local communities. Conversely, we are able to recognise how planning policies can be changed to protect clients’ interests, assist their objectives and ensure their operations are not compromised.
We therefore prepare and submit representations to a range of planning policy documents from Local Plans, Core Strategies, Site Allocations, Area Actions Plans, Development Management Policies, Planning Briefs for individual sites, Conservation Area Appraisals, Supplementary Planning Documents to Evidence Base Documents.
Policy Representations services include:
• Preparation and submission of representations seeking to influence policy making for our clients’ benefit;
• Examination statements - preparation of written evidence;
• Examination attendance - provision of verbal evidence at examination hearing sessions; and,
• Monitoring services – monitoring emerging policy documents to identify development opportunities and advise on policy implications for landowners.
