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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to discuss a major development proposal.
