4D Planning's role

4D Planning advised the client on the planning requirements for obtaining planning permission for the change of use of a former A1 Cafe/Deli to a restaurant (A3) on a busy high street. The Council had a threshold limit on the number of A1 units which can be lost to other uses. 4D Planning assisted the client with researching all the other uses along the high street and prepared a marketing report. We also produced the architectural drawings, Planning Statement - addressing all the planning policies which support the proposal and justifying the proposal to those policies which don't support the proposal. We liaised with the planners and obtained the acoustic report from one of 4D Planning's partner firms. The application was Granted permission by Hackney Council.
