Development Plan Representations
The planning system is plan-led meaning that decisions on planning applications should be made in accordance with the adopted development plan. Therefore, the planning system seeks pro-active and early engagement of landowners and developers in the consultation processes associated with Strategic and Local Development Plans. If your proposal is not in accordance with adopted planning policy, we can guide you through the development plan process and work with you to set out a clear case for your proposal and give the planning authority confidence that your development can be delivered. Compliance with the development plan should smooth the path for submission of the relevant planning application.
