We are experts in making Planning Applications and full Planning Appeals.

We will treat your case with the best care and attention.

This will include any necessary plans, including Extract Ducting, Refuse Storage, Shop Fronts, Signs, Sound Insulation, Land-Use surveys etc.

We will visit the site and take all necessary parking and land use surveys.

We negotiate with the Council Planning Department throughout in order to get permission.

We will send Planning Statements in support of your application based on relevant Planning Law. Because we have dealt with 100’s of different Councils in such cases, we know the best approach.

The Councils know our Company because of the hundreds of Applications and Appeals we have won and therefore, with our input your application stands the best chance of approval and getting permission.


Enforcement Notices and Breach of Condition Notice.
We have dealt with many Enforcement Notices and Breach of Condition Notices in many Council areas. We have been successful in many Enforcement Notice Appeals. So ring us first for immediate advice. We can often prevent fines and/or closure.

Premises Licenses
We can advise on obtaining Premises Licenses to allow you to open after 11pm to Midnight, 2 or 3am or even later.

Other Licenses
We can obtain Liquor (Drinks) Licenses for Restaurants/Wine/Bars/Clubs, etc. Also, Entertainment Licenses. (All come under the umbrella of a Premises License)

Conditions
We can obtain Later Opening Hours for you. Many Planning Approvals have conditions such as restricted opening hours, no take-away service and many other types. We are experts in the removal of conditions and have won dozens of cases. Conditions can stop you running your business properly and stop you selling the business in the future at a good price.
