Planning Services

Planning Help

The vast majority of our Clients benefit from our planning help and planning advice services.  The planning system in operation in England is supposedly the same across all local authorities, however the way it operates and how it affects those involved varies considerably depending on location, the particular planning officers involved, and the specific issues of each case.

Paul Martin assosiates has a wealth of experience in handling a wide variety of planning proposals. We can provide planning help and planning advice and support to our Clients at all stages of the planning application and approval process. We aim to help our Clients realise their desires while providing dedicated assistance in the handling of bureaucratic red tape.

Planning should never be ignored or left to chance – if it is dealt with promptly and with an appropriate professional approach, the system can work very favourably for Clients. Ignoring the process and its requirements is fraught with risk and can lead to time wasted and unforeseen costs – indeed these can be very substantial leaving anyone who has fallen foul of the process thousands of pounds out of pocket and with nothing to show for it.

We would be delighted to discuss any planning help and planning advice needs you have – if you have a planning question and want to start a project off on the right footing – call us on 01278 785007.
