There are many forms and types of planning applications, different for residential and commercial projects.
Before undertaking a design project we would assess the history and context of the site and its surroundings. We research the local planning authority and establish what planning applications previous neighbouring properties have proposed, either accepted or refused. We also examine whether the property is under a Conservation Area, a listed building or within a floor risk zone. These factors would affect the planning applications and additional documentation is required to supplement the proposal. However, such constraints we would guide the client appropriately.
Whether you require advice on a commercial or a residential planning application, our experts have wide experience of handling developments for individuals, businesses and developers. Each planning application is managed by one of our team, all of whom have the extensive, up-to-date knowledge required to make a success of your project.
To guarantee planning permission we will handle all submissions to the council in terms of making the application (paper or online), arranging site visits and liasing with the designated planning officer for any design or technical query. Please note – Active Architecture cannot guarantee that planning applications will be granted.
