The planning system in England and Wales has undergone a great number of changes in recent years, and is set to continue to evolve.
The Localism Act 2011 and the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) 2012 aim to streamline the planning system, with a stronger focus on sustainable development that meets the needs of communities, through Local Development Frameworks, Local Development Plans and Neighbourhood Plans.
It is now more important than ever to consider the sustainable merits of development, and the installation of appropriate infrastructure to serve the local community’s needs. The incorporation of sustainable planning into a development project at an early stage improves both the intrinsic and financial value of it.
Woolley has the expertise to ensure that this is achieved, through use of the best consultants for each development stage. The result is a development that provides maximum benefit to the community and maximum return to the client.
If you think that you may have a piece of land with development potential, please get in touch. We will be happy to conduct a free initial site appraisal with no obligation, to establish the best strategy to achieve planning consent.
