The planning system allows anyone affected by a planning proposal, including neighbours and the local community, to offer their views and raise any concerns or objections they may have. This in turn is taken into consideration and could affect the decision of the Local Planning Authority (LPA).
For example, you might be concerned about a new development being proposed nearby, and how this might affect your privacy, or the character of the local area.
This can be particularly important if you live within a Conservation Area or an Area of Special Landscape Character, or if your dwelling is a listed building.
You might be part of a local community group with concerns over proposals that could affect your village or town as a whole.
Whatever your situation, our team at One Planning Consultants are experienced in providing professional advice on how to best represent your personal interests and those of the wider community.
Our consultants can also assist with making representations to the LPA, attending Committee Meetings and presenting to local members on your behalf - bringing your concerns to the immediate attention of the decision-makers.
