The ECA planning team undertake regular planning appraisal work for a variety of clients and sites. We tailor our appraisals to meet the clients’ needs and budgets, and they usually require 1-15 days of work. The emphasis is on interpreting the most recent planning policy relevant to the site (rather than just quoting a ream of planning policies) and providing some practical development options, timescales and budgets. A submission to the Local Planning Authorities SHLAA is often included in an appraisal. Our architecture team can often provide some useful input into the development options.
We would be happy to provide examples of the some of the appraisals we have done to date.
