Pre-Application

Wheatman Planning Ltd provides advice to commercial and residential property developers on the approach that best realises the optimum development potential of a site, whether through the submission of a planning application or the (longer term) local development framework route.

If you would like to know whether land or buildings have development potential, a Planning Appraisal is how to find out. It will inform you whether planning permission is likely to be obtainable and the most appropriate course of action to take.

We have considerable previous experience in local authority planning departments and, as consultants, advising on development potential of land and buildings. Our service examines your proposal in the light of:

The planning history - we will undertake a search at the local planning authority to establish what property uses have been proposed, accepted and refused in the past.

The relevant national and local planning policies, together with all other material considerations which will influence whether a planning application is likely to succeed.
