If you are facing a planning challenge, Base can offer guidance and support. Whether this be from the inception of a project, or further into the process, Base are on hand to help. We are frequently called upon to resolve planning issues on ongoing projects, including those resulting from delays, disputed policy or regulation interpretation or challenging an unrealistic planning conditions.

Our services are available to homeowners, developers, architects and other professionals who may require assistance in resolving their planning queries.

Statements

We provide expert support and advice for clients who are required to submit planning statements as part of their development projects. These statements are often required by planning authorities as a way to demonstrate how a proposed development conforms to local policies and regulations.

These statements review planning history, associated designations and other material considerations in presenting why an application should be approved.

Submissions

Correct submissions are a critical part of the planning process, as they ensure no unnecessary delays and that the local authority are in receipt of all the necessary information to undertake their assessment. Base planning consultants can assist clients in preparing and submitting detailed and comprehensive submissions that meet all validation requirements or regulation guidelines.

These submissions may include site plans, architectural drawings, impact assessments, and other relevant information. Our services extend to include full support, management and guidance throughout the entire process to increase the likelihood of a positive determination.

Appeals

Unfortunately, the planning process is not always smooth sailing and there may be instances where the acceptability of an application is disputed by the local authority. In this scenario, it may be necessary to submit a planning appeal.

Base Planning Consultants provide expert assistance and representation for clients who are appealing a refused planning permission. This service includes reviewing the client’s case, identifying grounds for appeal, and preparing and submitting a robust Statement of Case which challenges the authority on their interpretation of policy and justification for refusal. We also represent clients at hearings or meetings related to the appeal and provide ongoing advice and guidance throughout the process. This service can be invaluable for businesses, property owners, and developers who are at an impasse with their planning application and can help unlock development opportunity.
