The first stage is for the client and the planning consultants to discuss the proposals, and potential development options. Our consultants examine the site either in person, or through desktop research using mapping technology and satellite imagery of the site.
We undertake a property site assessment by looking into the history and context of the site and its surroundings. We research the local planning authority to establish what property uses have been proposed, accepted and refused in the past. We also examine the listed buildings register to ascertain whether buildings listed for their heritage value are affected by the planning proposal.
Following the site and locality assessment, a site survey is carried out to gather all the dimensions and required information of the existing site.
