HomeServicesPlanning Applications
Overview: We deal with all aspects of planning applications for residential and commercial properties. There are many scenarios where a planning application will be required including: -
  • Extensions
  • Loft conversions
  • Change of use of a building e.g. residential to commercial use
  • Entrance gates fences and boundary walls next to a highway
Planning Application: we prepare drawings, carry out survey work, and assess relevant issues such as change of use, ground stability, access and flood risk, consult with the local authority’s planning and highways officers and submit an application.
Listed Building Consents: Much of Lyme Regis is designated as a conservation area and many of the buildings are listed. We have been involved with numerous listed building consents for projects in the town.
Appeals & Objections: Where planning application has been refused, we can assist in the preparation of a planning appeal. We can also assist in submitting objections to planning applications where required.
Development Plans: There are usually local authority development plans which are designed to control the nature of developments within their zone of control. This might include stipulations regarding housing density, affordability or environmental impact. We can assist in the interpretation of these development plans on your behalf before planning application is submitted.
Domestic Planning Issues: We are familiar with the intricacies of domestic planning issues such as excessively tall hedges, party wall disputes, tree preservation orders, right to light and rights of way.
Enforcement Appeals: We can apply for Lawful Development Certificates on your behalf where necessary.
