Heaton Planning is experienced in the preparation and submission of Planning Applications and the pursuit of planning appeals for a wide range of housing developments including minor extensions, new build dwellings, infill plots, conversions, development in the Green Belt, high performing sustainable homes and significant housing/mixed use developments.

We recommend initial assessments be carried out prior to any detailed design work to ensure that crucial housing Development Plan policy tests can be met, ultimately saving our clients time and potential expense in the long run. We take great care to ensure that our clients are properly advised of the potential risks and costs involved with their potential developments. Careful consideration is given to development in sensitive areas like Green Belt and Conservation Areas where strong planning arguments are needed to obtain Planning Permission.

Once we establish the guiding principles on how a housing development may be delivered we assist a range of clients in preparing and submitting Planning Applications for housing development.  We have vast experience of project management throughout the Planning Application process from concept stage through to submission and determination.  We also have experience of the appeals process and what is required to prepare evidence for, and win a Planning Appeal.

We are experienced in presenting robust planning cases for housing development which are set out in the Design and Access Statement that accompanies the Planning Application. We will also closely liaise with the Council prior to submission and throughout determination of the Planning Application.

We act on behalf of clients to engage with local authorities through making representations to Policy documents as they emerge.  Heaton Planning have made our clients’ voices heard through the allocation of land in planning policy documents.
