Major development proposals are often complex and raise a number of issues. We strongly encourage all developers to enter into early discussions on major proposals.

We will take a proactive approach to such discussions and where appropriate will organise a Development Management meeting where all the key technical bodies and consultees will be invited to attend. These meetings have the following benefits:-

  • They allow all of the interested parties to discuss the fundamental issues relating to a particular development
  • Help to identify the constraints of the site
  • Highlight the planning policies that are relevant to a particular site or development proposal
  • Clarify the type and level of information that would be needed to accompany any planning application 
  • Provide an opportunity to discuss any potential solutions to the issues that have been identified.
  • Experience has shown that such meetings help to prevent unnecessary delays and costs to applicants.

We currently offer development management meetings free of charge. Please contact us at if you wish to discuss a major development proposal.
