Pre-Application Consultancy Services
Pre-Application Advice and Guidance
Pre-application engagement offers significant potential to improve both the efficiency and effectiveness of the planning application process and improve the quality of planning applications and their likelihood of success.
It is therefore often helpful to seek the view of the Local Planning Authority (Council) before making a full planning application, and pre-application enquiries are common for complex or major development proposals.
SM Planning provide a full pre-application service, bespoke to each individual project, with the aim of agreeing common ground with the decision maker and thus reducing delays and problems once an application is submitted, particularly for schemes that are contentious locally.
