Within your appraisal Carpentry Connect will look at the planning history of a site through the Local Planning Authority’s records, analysing any previous planning decisions including those made through the appeal process and appraising the relevant planning policies. Once the appraisal has been undertaken, Carpentry Connect Planning can provide clients with a strategy to achieve the site’s maximum planning potential then followed by a fully costed construction solution to deliver your project from concept to completion.
Upon under taking Carpentry Connect Planning appraisal it may be possible to deliver your project under the General Permitted Development Order 2008. This analysis is particularly valuable for property owners within the Green Belt who have previously reached their ceiling of development through the Planning Policy route. Carpentry Connect Planning have been successful in achieving Certificates of Lawfulness for Proposed Development, known as CLOPUDs, even where previously refused applications have conflicted with Planning Policy.
