Planning Pre-application Advice

Pre-application advice is crucial to ensure your proposal adheres to the local requirements of the designated planning authority. Refused applications can be costly and the process is often complicated and difficult to understand.

Inception Planning assists clients in understanding often complex planning aspects and can help to unlock the full potential of proposed developments. Our consultants will review your proposals at all stages prior to the submission of an application and will utilise their experience and expertise to help you achieve final approval for your project.

We work with you to devise a strategy that fits your needs and will keep you informed of all developments along the application process. We can liaise with local authorities on your behalf and discuss options, including engaging in incremental approaches to achieve the final desired outcome.

Land Promotion

For landowners and developers interested in promoting sites, Inception Planning will provide pre-application advice regarding the land’s suitability, prospective uses and legislative constraints. Our site investigation services will also highlight any potential geotechnical or environmental issues at an early stage, ensuring complete transparency with what we are able to achieve.

Our expert knowledge of both brown and greenfield land development enables us to maximise each site’s potential. With our deep understanding of planning and regulatory requirements, our senior consultants will discuss and negotiate on your behalf with designated authorities to help achieve the intended level of development.

Once planning permission has been obtained, Inception Planning can undertake full marketing responsibilities for your property. Our land specialists, along with identifying and securing reputable buyers, can initiate sales discussions and manage the entire land promotion process for you, right up until end-sale.
