We deliver planning approvals for both public and private sector organisations
Bell Cornwell works with colleges, universities, institutions, and student housing companies that provide housing for students to provide planning services to meet their operational needs. When necessary, we can undertake reviews of wider property portfolios to help identify the right strategy or solution for our clients within both the state and independent sectors.
Projects for new developments within the education and community sectors will often attract a considerable amount of interest from the local community and interest groups. Schemes may also be subject to very specific land use constraints and to influence from organisations such as Sport England and similar organisations. Organisations possess considerable powers to influence the outcome of planning applications.
Bell Cornwell’s breadth of experience acting on a range of education and community schemes means that we have a strong understanding of the issues likely to require attention. We are able to provide clear advice in order to enable our clients to minimise the risks and costs required to secure a successful outcome, irrespective of the type of project envisaged.
Types of development:
- New schools or premises
- Change of use/services/facilities
- Community engagement
