Northern Planners offer a range of planning, environmental and technical services to help you achieve your project objectives. Please click on the relevant services below to find out more.
Pre-application & Feasibility AssessmentsEstablishing if your idea has potential
We provide a detailed investigation of your development proposal/planning issue to help identify the best course of action and strategy for a successful outcome. This is based on a site visit, review of documentation and where appropriate pre-application consultation with the local council.
Planning ApplicationsImproving your prospects of permission
We provide a preparation and submission service for all types of planning applications on a package basis suited to your specific needs – this can range from general advice / guidance and a ‘helping hand’, the preparation of a single supporting report, right through to full project management of the entire application. We are experts in producing Design and Access Statements and Planning Policy Appraisals in support of proposals.
Planning Conditions & ObligationsHelping you get started on site
In order to implement your planning permission you may have to satisfy conditions that have been imposed by the council as well as any obligations that have been entered into under a legal Section 106 agreement. We will help you discharge these requirements by conducting the right surveys and preparing the correct schemes.
Planning AppealsChallenging adverse decisions and conditions
Sometimes planning decisions don’t go your way. If after a review of the reasons for a refusal or conditions, we consider an appeal has potential for you, we will prepare your grounds of appeal, lodge the appeal application and manage the process throughout, including regular updates to inform you of your appeal’s progress.
Representations & ObjectionsGiving your views more impact
We submit representations and speak to Planning Committees on your behalf about your proposal or applications that will affect you. We also make representations on the policies and development land proposed in new Local and Neighbourhood Plans, including the promotion of sites for landowners.
