Frequently asked

What is planning?

Town planning is a plan-led process wherein decisions are made about using publicly owned land. Changes or development on the land might be proposed, and local authorities and other public bodies determine whether these proposals should be brought forwards in compliance or for material considerations which allow them to be carried forwards despite conflicts with the development plan.

Town planning can be a complex process with multiple third parties involved and elaborate steps to consider. We provide guidance and support to our clients to navigate town planning.
