From rural business schemes to town centre regeneration projects, we can help unlock development potential

Whether you are building new commercial facilities, repurposing existing premises or looking to secure a change of use, developing a robust planning strategy will be key to achieving your objectives.

Our experience of working on commercial projects is extensive, we have been involved in projects which range from small scale rural business schemes, to town centre regeneration schemes, large scale office developments and warehousing and distribution parks.

We work closely with developers, investors and business owners and our experience helps us add value to your development. We are familiar with the planning issues which are likely to be encountered in advancing commercial developments, including how to articulate the economic and employment benefits, how to address concerns about proposals’ impacts regarding matters such as traffic, servicing and noise and addressing locational requirements through the use of sequential analysis and similar techniques.

Types of development:

  • Retail
  • Cafes, restaurants and hotels
  • Industrial
  • Offices and professional services
  • Rural business premises
  • Mixed-use development
  • Warehousing, logistics and storage

Other Sectors

Acting on behalf of landowners, estates, farmers and other rural businesses, we can assist with sites even in the most sensitive locations. Our advice will help to unlock the development potential of your rural enterprise and utilise the initiatives on offer.
This type of new development will often attract considerable interest from the local community and may be subject to very specific land use constraints. We can liaise with key organisations to minimise risk and meet operational needs for clients within both the state and independent sectors.
There is a drive for renewable and low carbon energy solutions as well as sustainable waste management to be delivered through new development. There are both local and national policies at play and we can advise how to incorporate such technologies into your scheme.
Developments such as care villages, elderly and dementia care homes and assisted living accommodation require a strong understanding of sector specific issues. We can compile arguments related to need, specialist design and regulatory requirements as well as addressing the impact on local provisions.
We prepare heritage impact assessments to accompany applications as well as any additional consents that are required, such as listed building consent. Consult us at an early stage to identify local heritage assets and mitigate potential issues so you can pursue your scheme with greater confidence.
We can help with a range of home improvement projects such as the construction of ancillary accommodation and ‘granny annexes’, changes to allow working from home or extensions to the existing buildings. We can advise what type of permission you require and the best route to obtaining it.
Our experience includes traditional forms of development such as new hotels, holiday parks, campsites and short stay visitor accommodation. We are also specialists in less common schemes which include tree houses, shepherd huts and other high end, bespoke offerings. Our analysis of the site will help to develop a strategy that’s right for you.
We undertake work on residential projects of all sizes and types, ranging from single dwellings up to major urban extension and regeneration schemes. We can help you navigate any planning obligations as well as utilise strategic opportunities such as land supply deficiencies, previously developed land and permitted development, to name but a few.
As the housing market becomes more complex, a greater range of alternatives are being brought to the market such as purpose-built student housing, extra care for the elderly and co-living spaces for young professionals. We can help you navigate the associated planning obligations and develop a strategy to obtain the necessary permissions.
