At SMA, we have a good understanding of the current planning environment, along with our Clients’ needs and our role within the wider consultant team.
Whether you require an initial high-level site appraisal or a more detailed assessment as part of a planning application submission, we work closely with architects, planners and other consultants to ensure that access, drainage, utilities and noise/air quality strategies underpin the development proposals, helping to achieve the aims of our clients’.
Having regard to the tests set out by the National Planning Policy Framework and our experience in assisting with the design of Masterplans for clients, we are able to identify constraints and minimise risks, whilst maximising potential opportunities and deliver results for our clients.
As such, we can prepare detailed cost appraisals, consider appropriate development phasing and prepare detailed technical reports to accompany planning applications. Our experienced team will also advise upon Planning Obligations and Conditions.
Our experienced and qualified staff bring commercial awareness and a proactive approach to all commissions, which range from small scale sites to large urban extensions, strategic development and multi-million pound projects.
Whether you require an initial high-level appraisal, completion of technical reports to accompany a Planning Application or detailed design post consent, SMA have the capabilities to do it all.
