You’ll usually need to submit an application for planning permission if you want to:
- Build something new
- Make a major change to your building, such as an extension
- Change the use of your building
With the help of an expert EMS consultant, your organisation can apply to the relevant local planning authority for planning permission. All planning applications are required to be submitted on a standard form and can be submitted either online or by post. Your consultant will ensure your proposal is comprehensively completed prior to application, and that your submission contains all the required supporting documentation.
Our planning application service also includes liaison with the relevant local authority to discover if an Environmental Impact Assessment is required, or if other assessments regarding odour, ecology and noise are also mandatory. If this is the case, your EMS consultant can carry these out for you, ensuring they meet all the objectives and suitably support your planning application.
