PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT

Adopting the combined expertise of a forward thinking approach of both Chartered Surveyors and Town Planners, Acland Bracewell Surveyors are at the forefront of both strategic land and local plan promotion, planning and development and also the environmental and technical planning sector, in order to deliver high quality sustainable development. We are confidently able to provide our clients with a comprehensive planning solution.

 
OVERVIEW

Planning is by definition not an afterthought; it is something that needs careful and strategic consideration right at the start of the process. Obtaining planning permission can take much time and be very costly. This creates uncertainty and frustration for you and your business. Legislative and environmental changes require using the right balance of professionals to formulate and implement the most appropriate strategy to meet your needs and the greatest possibility of success, not only to ensure a successful planning permission, but a consent that is viable and importantly, deliverable.

 
OUR EXPERTISE

During the last 60 years, Acland Bracewell Surveyors has built strong foundations on the strategic promotion of land on the urban fringe and the Green Belt through the Local Plan process, and their development for housing and mixed uses in the North West. After fifteen years of a planning moratorium, all UK political parties are aligned to help achieve sustainable development; that is to house a rising UK population, which is living longer and in turn, provide employment, whilst ensuring that our future generations lives are not made worse by today's decision making. Using our market knowledge and understanding, we continue to deliver success for our clients ranging from settlement infill to strategic housing allocations.

STRATEGIC LAND PROMOTION

PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT

Working in conjunction with our strong landowner and farming client base, Acland Bracewell Surveyors are market leaders for successful planning and development in the town and country, specialising in the Green Belt, land on the urban fringe and within built up commercial allocations. Working with their established team of preferred partners, we continue with their proven track record of successfully delivering for our clients planning permission for agricultural, industrial and buildings, waste handling facilities to strategic commercial and residential urban extensions.

ENVIRONMENTAL AND TECHNICAL PLANNING

With ever increasing needs for clients to have certainty in their planning permission, together with a greater impetus on local authorities to adapt proactive strategies to mitigate and adapt to climate change, Acland Bracewell Surveyors have applied their knowledge and expertise as chartered surveyors to the planning system. In conjunction with their preferred urban design and technical partners, we seek to ensure that technical constraints are identified and mitigated right at the start of the concept. Whether that be ground conditions, drainage, ecology, highways or other technical issues, collaboratively working with third party technical professionals informs our clients expectations, by providing them with sustainable and deliverable schemes, reducing unnecessary planning conditions and additional costs.

PLANNING ADVICE

There may be instances when our clients inadvertently stray off the beaten ‘planning’ path and require assistance on the options available to them and professional representation in order to bring certainty on the position they may face. Acland Bracewell Surveyors fully appreciate that planning by nature can be stressful for our clients as a result of uncertainty. Whether our clients require guidance on enforcement, breaches of planning control, certificates of lawfulness, regularisation by way of a retrospective planning application, or providing our clients with comprehensive planning advice, we continue to successfully bring comfort and resolution to our clients.
