Planning services – Private Residential

AZ Urban Studio’s planning team is experiencedin dealing with all aspects of private residential planning, including:

  • Bespoke new dwellings
  • Replacement dwellings (including in Green Belt / Conservation Areas)
  • Infill/backland new build development
  • Extensions and outbuildings
  • Conversions and change of use
  • Site development strategies
  • Listed building consent

Our expertise and experience in the full range of planning matters involved in private residential development – both urban and rural – enables us to guide clients and architects towards timely planning approvals. We work closely with local authority planning officers to formulate and negotiate acceptable solutions. However, where situations become intransigent, we are well placed to advise clients on the likelihood of a planning appeal being successfuland to represent clients through the appeal process.

Working alongside the project architect, we advise clients on the full range of planning policy considerations and prepare relevant submission documents including Design & Access Statements, Planning Statements and Heritage Assessments to put forward our
casefor the development.

By dealing effectively and efficiently with the planning aspects of residential projects from the earliest stages of projects we minimise both planning risk for clients and exposure to unnecessary costs and delays associated with protracted or unexpected planning issues.
