Using our experience with commercially successful Mixed-Use schemes, we can ensure the delivery of developments that have a range of uses that are appealing not just to the developer, but the local community and the Local Authority. Be it Residential, Office, Hotel, Extra Care Homes, Medical Centres or Schools to name but a few, we can offer that insight into what will make a successful Mixed-Use Scheme.
Gone are the days where a Planning Application was just a few forms to fill in and some plans / elevations. There is now a raft of information that is required for an application to be validated and then ultimately determined. We can offer our experience of this and alongside other consultants guide clients through the process.
These documents are the key that unlocks the design. Whether it is a straightforward dwelling or a large mixed use development, the Design and Access Statement is the document that sells the concepts and the design to the Local Authority, members of the Public and Elected Officials. We can offer this document as part of the Planning service, or as a standalone piece of work.
