Planning Applications

It is worth understanding the very principal of the planning system which is to enable sustainable development by ensuring that new development schemes provide an economic, social and an environmental benefit. These aims run through both plan-making and decision-taking at local and national levels of planning policy.

These aims are clear, however, one single approach does not apply to all. From a single dwelling to a medium to large scale housing development each and every individual housing project is different and requires bespoke responses and carefully thought through strategies.

From the initial appraisal taking into account specific site constraints through to a consideration of design, density and neighbour amenity issues we lead our clients through the planning process, undertaking negotiations on S106 agreements and issues such as affordable housing contributions whilst navigating through the complexity of national and local planning policy requirements which need to be identified and addressed but which form the core and an important part of the process.

At Foxley Tagg our team of qualified planning professionals provide the added value that technical planning expertise can bring. We provide effective and efficient planning support on developments of single sites, in respect of replacement dwelling or indeed on new housing developments. We are well versed in public consultation and have vast experience of negotiating and liaising with Local Authorities and Stakeholders.

We aim to provide sound advice, by engaging with our clients, establishing the facts, their requirements and objectives. Our solutions are achieved through careful analysis and evaluation so that we submit the best case and strongest arguments to attain the best outcomes.

From experience we know that project management of the whole planning application process is the key to a successful outcome. Therefore further to producing submission material and documents Foxley Tagg is able to fully project manage the planning process to include identification and instruction of any and all additional expert consultants which may be required in more complex cases.

Since we were established on 2000 we have established a network of invaluable contacts within local authorities, and use this to initiate a good working dialogue with planning officers before commencing a project. Our sound appreciation of all the issues, enables us to maximise opportunities to achieve positive outcomes.
