Commercial Planning and Licensing

Commercial Planning Applications

Planning permission is generally required to carry out development, whether this involves starting building works or undertaking a material change of use of your land.


The application process includes submitting details and plans of the proposed development to the local planning authority, who will then decide whether to grant or refuse permission. The length of time that the application process takes is dependent on the complexity of the development proposal. Some applications will be determined within 8 weeks. Others can take several months. Our specialist planning team can help you to put together your application and liaise with the local planning authority while it is being determined. If your application is being considered by councillors we can also represent you at council meetings. If your application is refused we can guide you through the appeal process, submitting a planning appeal on your behalf and representing you at any hearing.
